With the obvious problems in the city government, I have decided I will run for mayor of Tuscaloosa at the next municipal election. I do not live in Tuscaloosa (but like Larry Langford, I donâ€™t see that as a problem because I bring ideas to the table.)
My platform for the campaign would consist of two major points:
1. I would make the city a true partner with the University of Alabama. UA is the dynamic engine of economic expansion for Tuscaloosa, and we should make sure the engine is in good repair. I purpose to keep the relationship between UA and the city well maintained.
2. I would fire the police chief and the city attorney.
Think that is a winning platform?
In all seriousness, the city has a big problem and this must be addressed. Any lawyers out there want to create a PAC to make sure we run the bums out of office at the next election?
Thanks to all our friends in the blogosphere and other media outlets for the positive comments over the last few days. It means a lot when top notch bloggers like Tide Druid, Eight in the Box, and Memphis Tider send praise our way. Thanks so much.
UPDATE: Tide Druid provided a campaign sign. I can see this on billboards and lapels around Tuscaloosa now!
