Pepper v. Mallory

Should be an interesting race. I hope you all made it out to vote yesterday. The Enquirer and Post have tons of coverage, but here are a couple thoughts:

- Winburn - Sad the republicans can't put up a viable candidate. The charter amendment for strong mayor had a lot of republican support and the fact that in a race with 3 democrats and 1 republican, the republican couldn't gain enough support to finish in the top 2 is amazing. I know the City has a strong democrat lean, but there should be someone in the city that can get more than 20% of the vote.

- Reece - Not to be negitive, but I am glad to see her go.

All in all, I think a race between Mallory and Pepper will be great. Should keep things out of the mud, and hopefully there will be some actual policy discussions occuring!

Interesting link listing vote totals by ward. Gives you some idea of bases of support. I think it's safe to assume that a good portion of the republican (Winburn) votes will go to Pepper. And a good portion of the Reece votes will go to Mallory. That being true, and Pepper has a slight advantage over Mallory at the start. But the trick will be getting Republicans engergized about going out on election day to vote for 1 of 2 Democrats.

In comparing the vote totals from eastside wards for Winburn with those a month ago for Jean Schmidt, it is clear that Pepper yesterday received substantial support from Republican voters.
Good design!
