Teresa Barth campaign kickoff speech


My favorite part?
Transparency in government and full citizen participation in the decision making process is critical to our success as a City.

I have been principled and conservative in how our tax dollars are spent. I fully support public employee pension reform.

Tranparency in government and reform of employee pensions. That's a pretty good campaign platform. And it's interesting that Barth, widely viewed as a green Democrat, is running as a fiscal conservative -- and rightly so! The Republicans on the council have been anything but fiscally conservative.

I hope the other candidates will follow Teresa's lead in starting to discuss issues. One candidate doesn't appear to have any campaign information online, and another has a web site that's very long on bio ("one time, at band camp...") and a big zilch on issues.
