I don’t even have to see my shadow this morning to know that there will be six more weeks of campaigning
Happy Groundhog Day, everybody! I participated in the 4-A’s (African American Accountability Alliance) Forum last night, and although I thought I performed well, I did not receive their endorsement. Sitting City Commissioner Craig Lowe did, which goes to show you that the 20 or so voting members were not among those who felt burned by Lowe’s ramming through of the Transgender Bathroom Ordinance, even likening it to the Civil Rights struggle of the 1960s. In the district 4 race, they also endorsed Penny Wheat.
I’m glad I went. I will not shrink back. I am moving on! And I will try to have the video clips processed for tomorrow.
I have always looked forward to the candidate forums, and we will be starting with what I think is the best. The 4As (African American Accountability Alliance) is always well attended, and the debate is always lively. Most gratifying is that they also make an endorsement at the end of the night, and it’s not an empty one. The candidate they endorse usually gets help on his or her campaign. This forum is on Monday, February 1, at 6pm. It’s located at the Alachua County Health Department Building behind the Food Lion on Hawthorne Rd. It’s proper address is 224 SE 24th St, Gainesville, FL.
If Ed Braddy and Jake Fuller will have me today, I will be on their show sometime between 12 and 1pm. You can hear them on 99.5 FM. Ed and I talked about this the other day, and I believe all systems are go!
Although TV20 has already announced my campaign for Mayor, this will be the first media announcement made by me. And that’s if you don’t count YouTube!
