Crampsie Smith blasts off (9)

(9th in a series of posts on candidates for election)

Grace Crampsie Smith launched her campaign at Roosevelt’s this afternoon.

Bloggers are not always well liked.

But, understanding her family’s allegiance to the “Fighting Irish,” Gadfly wore his ND hat (PhD ’70), exchanged the secret handshake, and was welcomed by the candidate with great warmth.

Listen in!

You’ll learn her dominant family gene is Publicum Officium.

And that the major points on her platform are:

  • insuring the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens
  • economic efficacy
  • socially responsible economic development

A reminder that the other new candidates for Council thus far are Will Carpenter, Carol Chamberlain Ritter and David Saltzer. Incumbents running are J. William Reynolds, Michael Colon, and Paige Van Wirt. Incumbent Shawn Martell is not running. There are three four-year seats and one two-year seat on the ballot this year. As far as Gadfly knows, Crampsie Smith and Carpenter are running for the two-year seat, Ritter and Saltzer for the four.
