Election Day, 2007

I went to the polls today and voted. I vote at Agape Church just north of Fort Wayne on Lima Road.

I think everyone should vote and I encourage everyone to vote.

Just for the record I voted as follows:

Mayor, Matt Kelty (R)
2nd Ditrict City Council, John Bartels (L)
City Council at Large, Doug Horner (L), Bill Larsen (L), and Michael Brightbill (L)

My vote for Mayor was easy; Tom Henry is most alikely a good guy; however, he is not going to change anything he is just going to keep Fort Wayne going down the path of calling restaurants and strip malls economic development.

My vote for 2nd District City Council was extremely difficult. All three candidates are strong candidates so I voted Libertarian.

My vote for At-Large was easy for the first two spots. Doug Horner and BIll Larsen are both freinds of mone and hold similar views to me on most things. Both would make great City Councilmen. I had a very hard time choosing a third candidate. I could not vote for any of the Republicans since all of them support Harrison Square. Essex and Ross I do not know much about so I did not vote for them either. Until the McDOnalds tax abatemnet I was going to vote for John Shaoff (D). He disappointed me when he voted for a tax abatement for a company that pays just over minimum wage. So I voted for Michael Brightbill (L) as my third choice.

I did not vote for Sandra Kennedy (D) for City Clerk since she is running unopposed.

Whether I agree with you or disagree with you on the issues; I hope you go out and vote.
