Lakewood Mayor's Race

The race for Mayor has officially begun as I had stated some time ago, Ed Fitzgerald announced in the Lakewood Observer and Sun Post that he will seek the seat defended by Tom George.

His platform is essentially the same as what he ran on in the '05 At-Large Council race, which is "... presenting plans to stabilize the city's precarious financial position, bolster the housing stock, improve public safety, and spur economic development."

Of course Tom George without pausing at all launched into an attack on Fitzgerald on the Observer and on the Lakewood Buzz about his lack of a record (true) and his running for several different offices over the past several years (also true). Then proceeded to crow that he has been endorsed by the Cuyahoga Democratic Chair/ County Commissioner Jimmy DiMora.

All I can say is BIG DEAL!

Finally, these two can act like the 5 year olds in public instead of behind closed doors.

I am not sure if this race will be fun or just plain pathetic, neither of these two politicians should be elected, they really have no real great records to run on.

Unless someone else steps up and throws their hat in the ring, this the choice the voters will have to make in 2007.

God Help Us!
