Clark, Atkins Kick Off Partisan Campaign
I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. Looks like Goerge Clark and Linda Atkins have joined their campaigns together at the hip, even to the point of using campaign signs with both their names on them.
I'd wondered how partisan Clark was going to make this race after he started out right at the start emphasizing his so- called progressive credentials. Now we know for sure. He's started a blog with the first post a stab at Republican's proposals for more offshore oil drilling.
And don't you love his logo at the top right of the blog: Going local? Right out of the gate he takes on an issue that's outside the jurisdiction of the office he's seeking. You can be sure we'll be seeing some letters to the editor in the local papers within the next few months from either Clark, Atkins or others comparing Frank Jager or Polly Endert to George Bush. Wonder if Jake Pickering is working on one already?
What an ugly campaign Clark has started. It will be interesting to see which style prevails. Jager's non- partisan approach dealing with local issues, or the Clark/ Atkins approach of using a city council race to pontificate national issues? I'm hoping Eurekans will be as fed up as I am already with turning this into such a partisan race.
