Mckay had his major support group,the Walkers, at the debate.They seem these days to travel as a group.Bill,Sharon,Scott,wife and child. They displayed their "John McKay for Mayor" stickers proudly and left no doubt in anyones mind that he is their man. And he supports them also in their effort to act like life is good,be happy,don't worry.

I watched Bill Walker at the debate every time McKay would speak. Walker is very good - better than Edgar Bergin or SeƱor Wences. Never saw his lips move.

I think he was using new wireless technology. The days with the wires and keeping a stiff chin are gone forever. Walker is very effective.

My prediction is Hagan out, Denyer out, Cody out in this round.Aldermen will be punished for the waste of money on their watch such as the Million Dollar Phycamore disaster they all wanted to appeal to the MS Supremes. Dalgo will be fine he used his common sense to say no to that one.Greg Denyer has that and the Walkers campaigning for him.They helped seal his retirement fom the BOA.

I think they spelled the words wrong in the headline. It should be de - bait, as in take the bait off the hook. But then maybe they meant the term as in, "John did you get de bait from the same place that you got de cake".

So much for your predictions. Glad I don't subscribe to any betting service you may offer. You must not know sh!t about OS politics.

Actually I was a touch surprised that Denyer kept his seat. But I was shocked that Joey Bellman didn't beat Chic.

It will be hard to unseat a person that donate their salary (regardless of intent) back to their ward.

Bellman did well but didn't put in as much work as was needed. Perhaps it was a wakeup call for both denyer and cody that 40+% of their wards disapprove of their work

I agree that Denyer has an ace in the whole with the salary donation. I feel sure it has a lot to do with his retirement. Plus he knows everybody thru the school system. The Walkers have hurt him big time as for as perception as an honest person goes. Which proves you do not have to be considered honest by your peers to be an elected politician.

My prediction was about 50% correct.Dalgo was fine,Hagan cannot win based on getting 30% of the vote in the primary. In the general election I predict McKay and McDonnell will win together or loose together.Place your bets.

Nah. I think the fishing issue is going to swallow McKay. His support is eroding and his decision to call the hand of the auditor is fools work. He's going from having to pay the money back to indictment. Pickering is a political animal and McKay threw a hot potato in his lap. When he runs for congress he'll be answering questions about this himself. Expect McKay to be an example of Pickering holding public officials accountable.

I think you are spot on. Mckay made big time error by not being remorseful up front. He blew the momentum he had and does not have the time or the ability to recover. Unless Pickering is in a position to bring forth all of the facts of his investigation he can not allow any one person to exit. McKay is making his situation worst day by day. Tuesday will be a day of big decisions for him. He will be mentally drained by the time the debate rolls around. Expect an aggressive but poor showing by him.
