I'll be very surprised to see how this election turns out. A lot of the more extreme conservatives like her but “normal” conservatives like myself think she's a little crazy. I think a lot of people are looking for change though, and she'll definitely bring that. I do like her stance on taxes, limited government, and listening to what the people want in cases like the Ten Commandments issue but she's way too far for me. This should be very interesting Julie...

No kidding, Shane.

My prediction: Swindell will lose, but Tibbs will win. Normal conservatives will send the anti-incumbent vote via the former police chief, leaving them able to more freely perish the thought of electing Brandi.

The key, though, is a big turnout from the liberal and moderate folks, who will strongly oppose Swindell and probably split on Tibbs/Mapp over the annexation/infill issue. The fundi-cons will be out in force; the rest of us need to be, too.

Well, I'm here to tell ya - she's done a good job of alienating those in my own family who don't vote in the manner I think they should.

Mary Ann Jordan lives in the same subdivision as my sister, which is 'flooded' with people who are in their church ward. (A good indication which 'church') Jordan has been a neighbor for years & years - 15+. They don't support Ms Swindell nor will they vote for her, regardless of her 'christian' rubric.

Check the North End Neighborhood Association newsletter and you'll see that she's taken the exact wording of the questions posed to her by NENA and posted them on her website at under Why Brandi's Running, without giving credit to the original author(s). Sheesh.

RE: Popkey's "sexism:" it's much more insulting to women that she feels she needs to dress like a hotte and get glamor photos done in order to get media attention. I'm all for people dressing the way they want, but as a voter I look to my elected officials to take me seriously as a person of intelligence and not as a horny dude who just wants to vote in a pretty face with a hot body.

Bigdub (above),

That's fascinating (and cheesy) about the NENA newsletter. Do you have a link to the newsletter online? I'd like to blog about that.

Julie:

There a Boise City Council Candidate Forum @ Boise Library - Wed, Oct.26th @ 7PM.

Yesterday I received this newsletter (email) from the Brandi campaign. It's the usual stuff. There are two items of note: 1) the mention of church directories & dropping them off at campaign headquarters; 2) Maryanne's 'campaign is getting "more aggressive".

I can forward a copy for verification if you like.
