City Council Endorsement - ALGPC and SDA

I got to see some of the candidates, hear some of their positions, smoke a cigarette out on the street (because of you goddamn asthmatics who banned smoking indoors) and finally find out who we endorsed.

It was an exciting night down at the Commissioner's Court. At least I was excited. I'd been looking forward all day to seeing Jennifer Gale's first performance of the city endorsement season. Unfortunately, due to an unfortunate oversight on the part of SOMEONE at ALGPC, she wasn't invited. When I protested, the others in the audience, who have no appreciation for raw talent, kinda got irritated AND GROANED. It's a shame so many had to die, but I just couldn't see myself putting up with that kind of behavior. Well, that AND I was nicfitting like a motherfucker. I know, I quit... however, after the day I had I needed a damn cigarette. Cut me some slack, mother. YOU didn't have to deal with your admin asst threatening to quit. At 4:30 in the afternoon, natch.

Though the membership rolls of both the Austin Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus and Stonewall Democrats of Austin were decimated, they did manage to make some great decisions... and some real mistakes.

Place 1

ALGPC - Leiffingwell
SDA - No endorsement

Place 3

ALGPC - Shade
SDA - Shade

I voted for Kim in both and feel that a mistake was made. By letting so many clearly stupid people vote. I kid, I kid... I like Randi and think she's a nice lady. I just like Jennifer's tenacity better and think she's done a much better job than she's generally given credit for.

Place4

ALGPC - Morrison
SDA - Morrison

I gotta say, I'm disappointed Robin Cravey didn't get at least one.

In other exciting city council endorsement news, BATPAC released their endorsements.

I agree that it is frustrating to see Robin passed up on the endorsement list by some of these organizations. However, it is important to remember that endorsements dont vote. During primary season we watched many candidates that swept endorsements loose their races. A note to the general public, dont vote based on a candidates endorsement lists, do your own research and make an informed decision!
