It's been mentioned around the blogs that I haven't been keeping up the Ward 1 city council coverage since the endorsement convention ended. Frankly, I haven't seen the need to do more stories because to me, there has been no news. Doron Clark and Jose Velez ended the convention asking for the delegates to endorse Kevin Reich unanimously, which we all did. Although Susan Howitz Hanna is still in the race, she has yet to even put up a website, much less do any active campaigning that I can see (and I did email her after the convention asking her to keep me in the loop so that I can stay on top of any potential campaign). To me, there is just no news, and I'm not a blogger who will grasp at straws or do rehashes and what might have beens just to fill my pages.
And as for park board, I am fully behind my neighbor Liz.
I understand there is a new ward 1 blog in town, and I welcome all of you to go read it. I won't be covering the race unless until there is actual news to write about.
