President Obama has decided that the way to sell you on Nationalized Health Care is with a logo. So the ol’ PR team put the Obama campaign logo together with the medical caduceus to form the Prez’s own, personal Health Care logo:
There will be no question on where to look when your request for kidney dialysis has been rejected because you’re too old.
So on that note, we here at Leavenworth Street figured that if Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle really wants to “sell” his budget plan, he needs a good solid logo. One that lets you know that it’s his plan, and what the point of the plan is.
So here is what we’ve come up with:
It’s Candidate Suttle’s logo.
It’s the basis of the plan: your cash.
And then we threw in the Mayor’s Durango, to give the logo a little “action”, and of course to personalize it a little more.
The Mayor and his gang should feel free to use this in all future ad blitzes.
(If you really have some Mad Men-esque ads skills and can come up with a better logo, send them to us and we’ll put up the best ones.)
Closin’ libraries and pools. Groundin’ helicopters.
Drivin’ away Police Chiefs. Raisin’ taxes.
Remember when all this was promised by Omaha’s new Mayor during the campaign?
You remember. He said he would raise your property taxes, lay off city workers, and provide much less police protection.
Ohhhhhhh yeah. He never said ANYTHING during the campaign. Right, right.
But he wasn’t Hal Daub, and that was good enough for a majority of voters.
But, harking back, you will remember that candidate Jim Suttle’s excuse for not providing a single detail about what he wanted to do if elected was because he wanted to hear what THE PEOPLE wanted, and then implement that plan.
So, after all the meetings the Mayor had with the citizens of Omaha, did he get any ideas from The People?
The answer by Hiz Honor, on KFAB’s Scott Voorhees show…uh, no.
And, from Voorhees, has Mayor Suttle looked to any other cities for suggestions on how to deal with a budget shortfall?
But the Mayor has decided that the way to shore up things in the city budget is to go with his initial plan — raise taxes.
And the Mayor would like you to show your support for raising taxes.
Well, according to a recent Tweet by the Mayor:
Come support preserving City services at the public hearing on the budget, Tues. the 11th, 7 p.m., Legislative Chambers, City Hall.
So there you go.
Are you ready for the next PR blitz from Ron Penzkowski?
Well, you say you want to have your city services.
So you’ve confirmed you want your taxes raised.
Passive-aggressive, but interesting.

No sense letting that campaign War Chest go to waste!
