DGCA held their caucus Sunday. About 16 people showed up to hear three of the four candidates answer questions and give a bit of info on themselves. Jim Norris took a pass. You may not blame him, as he was an outsider from the word go:
- Marylin Schnell was a protege of Advocate member and former mayor Betty Cheever
- William Waldack was endorsed by the DGCA four years ago and probably gave the best of three good presentations
- Bob Barnett was an Advocate in the past.
Still, there were 16 people there who didn’t know Jim Norris from Adam, and still don’t. To boot, this year it had been intimated that Advocates would post the audios of all presentations, not just the endorsed candidates.
There’s got to be a better way to do these kinds of things.
