Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey will make an announcement at the Jim Suttle for Mayor HQ on Monday morning at 9:30 AM.
Fahey is going to announce that he is going to be non-committal in the Mayor’s race.
Well, what would one expect, after Suttle dismissed the importance of Fahey, a fellow Democrat, endorsing him:
“We are both Democrats. I am a protege of his. I think we have to put Fahey’s comments into proper perspective.”
Oh, wait. Suttle didn’t say that about himself. He said it about Jim Vokal’s endorsement of Hal Daub. But of course, if Suttle believes that to be the case with Vokal and Daub, it is certainly the case here.
After all, anyone who has been around City Hall for the past four years knows that Mike Fahey does not like Jim Suttle. As we mentioned before, Suttle has consistently been a thorn in Fahey’s side, opposing him on key issues, and posturing himself for a run at the Mayor’s office.
But Fahey’s no dummy. He can’t NOT oppose Daub, whom many local Dems hate with a seething hatred they reserve only for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Fahey would be persona non grata at the Holiday if he were to stand still and let Daub take the Mayor’s office.
Fahey is a practical guy. So he will swallow his pride and “endorse” Suttle, and then belch and go on about his business.
Of course in real life Mike Fahey was front row and center at the most nationally televised CU game at the Q.
And that facility never would have happened if it weren’t for the leadership of former Mayor Jim Suttle.
