Oh my Heathern Gawds!! Just when you think the Dems are down and all the way out, the come around and surpises every and all peoples by winning the dad blasted Clerk’s race. So, now, the Dem’s have 2 and maybe 3 spots to fill in caucus.
The other seat that must be filled is Clarksville Town Court Judge. This position will be filled next Tuesday. It will be important that the Party puts in a person who is bright and ‘new generation’ and who can inspire the public that the Party has moved into the 21st Century.
Goliath hears speculation but sounds like a few people want this spot.
Second, The County wide caucus has to happen to replace Susan Popp on the County Council. Goliath recommends as follows:
1. Select a currently seated ‘bright star’ younger person who presently serves in a lesser office. Either from Clarksville, Sellersburg, Charlestown or some other spot. The benefit of doing this is you can move a good office holder up to a higher spot with more responsibility. AND it would mean opening up a spot in the lesser office that you could bring in a bright new star and end with 3 Caucuses. It’s CHESS not CHECKERS.
On a side note, and in keeping with Goliath vision, he recommend placing Brad Amos of Sellersburg Town board in the Council spot. Brad was recently placed on the Sellersburg Town Board. He has served very well and seems he would be a good choice. Then you can return Brian Meyer to the Sellersburg Town Board to serve the folks that elected him and have the benefit of his good work in that spot.
2. Goliath hear that John Perkins is angling and lobbying for the spot of Councilman to replace Susan. Goliath advice to Caucus: NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. John, we love ya but you gots to serve in some other appointed spot like Utility Board or Redevelopment or something someone appoints you to to get all the benefit of your way smart knowledge of gummmit, but not in a spot you have to run for office.
3. Goliath also think…any politician over 50 should be ruled out.
4. Goliath also think any candidate that ran for office in the past two years and got beat should be ruled out. We want winners.
Good LUCK DEMOCRATS!!
