Ed Oakley and His Eyebrows Considering Another Run

The mayoral runner-up says the chances are “slim to none,” but adds that people are itching for him to enter the race for District 3. Even though the filing deadline is Monday, Oakley and Dave Levinthal are confident he would have no problem meeting the requirements.

But, we reminded Oakley, collecting enough voter signatures to file a valid petition for a ballot position would take him about half a day.

“That’s true,” Oakley said.

Jeez, Dave. Just rub more salt in the wound. I hope the Bills go 0-16.

    Quite some time ago, I, along with another semi-frequent commenter, had to gather signatures for someone who decided at the last minute that he/she wanted to enter a DCC race. Depending on which district you’re in and for who, you are gathering signatures, it can take, ahem, longer than half a day.

    Place of residence never stopped Ed. A benefactor rented an apt in his name on Cedar Springs when he wanted to run in District 14 in 1993
