First, a little Separated at Birth for the final two candidates for Mayor of Lincoln.
Bespeckled former State Senator, Chris Beutler
Bespeckled Lake Wobegon resident, Garrison Keillor
Mustachioed Lincoln City Councilman, Ken Svoboda
Mustachioed Hawaii P.I., Tom Selleck.
With the Lincoln Mayor’s race down to two, we thought we would go ahead and post on the race. But instead of tossing out our take on the match-up between Beutler and Svoboda, we thought we’d toss it to YOU the Leavenworth Street reader on the comment board:
Who’s going to win, and why?
But please resist telling us who you think should win, or who has better proposals or whatever else.
Here on Leavenworth Street, we want to hear your political savvy as to why one of these two will win. What are the political reasons?
If you can’t help but get into their policy positions, please tell why voters – and which voters – will be drawn to vote for them based on that position.
- How will money play?
- How will Beutler’s primary plurality affect the psyche of the voters?
- What of voter turnout?
- And how about the party make-up of Lincoln voters?
Here’s your big chance to show the readers of Leavenworth Street that your political analysis deserves to be heard (and if you don’t want to sign your name, please come up with an alias, just so we can follow who’s saying what).
Have at it!
