IS IT TRUE? October 21, 2011

IS IT TRUE that today is the day that the campaign finance reports are due from all of the candidates running for office in 2011?…that thus far exactly one has been made available to the public through an online distribution?…that Republican Candidate for Mayor of Evansville Lloyd Winnecke published a link to his website with the report sometime during the night?…that it is available on the City County Observer for anyone and everyone to dig through to their heart’s desire on the following link?

IS IT TRUE that Indiana Smokefree Communities held their last meeting before the election yesterday at the Central Library?…that at this point both candidates for Mayor of Evansville and every candidate for Evansville City Council has been offered the opportunity to state their position and their case?…that both candidates for Mayor have spoken as have 10 of the 14 candidates for the city council seats that are opposed?…that even the unopposed candidate from the 1st Ward, Councilman Dan McGinn sent in a written statement?…that the unopposed candidate from the 4th Ward, Councilwoman Connie Robinson left no room for doubt about her support for a stronger smoking ordinance with her “I am my brother’s keeper” speech prior to casting her yes vote the last time this came up?…that there will be a position paper released soon that will let everyone know exactly who the preferred candidates are to strengthen the City of Evansville smoking ordinance?

IS IT TRUE that in a short 19 days we will all know whether it will be Lloyd Winnecke or Rick Davis who will become the Mayor that will assume responsibility for executing the decisions that are playing out right now?…that that there are 71 days remaining in the Weinzapfel Administration?…that if you thought the first 21 days of 40 days of hell were nasty just stay tuned for the last 19 days of hell?

IS IT TRUE that there are now 373 days remaining in the two years that the EPA had given the City of Evansville to present an acceptable solution to the Combined Sewer Overflow problem?…..that this plan is an expensive and complex endeavor that needs immediate attention to avoid the embarrassment and expense of another round of fines?

IS IT TRUE that in only 10 days we shall know whether the McCurdy Hotel project is a GO or just another case of NO GO?…that the Evansville Redevelopment Commission will be meeting again on November 1, 2011 and that may just be the last day of reckoning for City Center Properties or it may be time for a legitimate celebration?…that the status report by Hunden Capital Partners with respect to the downtown Convention Hotel Project seems to be in a coma?…that not a word has come out for over a month and that we are wondering if the two bidders are in danger of being Vetted to Death?…that as long as this has been dragging out that the decision really should be deferred until the next Mayor takes office?…that this will be the only way to bury the stigma of four years of standing confused at the starting line?…that the next Mayor’s signature on a hotel contract will bury that stigma?


  1. Regardless of who becomes the next mayor, I will not envy their position in the least. They have quite a task ahead of them.
