I went to the "kick-off" party for Karen Goldner's campaign for Fort Wayne's 2nd City Council District this evening.
It was a well-attended event and I thought it was a good start for Karen's campaign.
Karen gave a short speech and said she had five priorities:
Jobs, Jobs, Neighborhoods, Downtown, and Jobs.
So she and I agree on four of the five; we obviously do not agree on "downtown."
I only knew a few people at the event:
Tina Taviano, Democratic candidate for sheriff in 2006
Glenn Hines, Democrat on Fort Wayne City Council
Tim Pape, Democrat on Fort Wayne City Council
Don Willis was at the event as expected. Don Willis is the founder and Chairman of FourthWave LLC. Karen Goldner works for FourthWave LLC. If Don Willis gets on board with Karen's campaign, as I expect, Karen will be able to run a well funded campaign!
This will be interesting to watch. I am looking forward to it.
As many of you know I attended several meeting of the Fort Wayne City Council group that helped re-district Fort Wayne due to the Aboite annexation. The new City Council Districts on the north side of town were changed based on my recommendations. The changes moved both Karen Goldner and myself into the 2nd City Council District.
This should be an interesting race to watch.
