Kelsey Dodges Opportunity to Grandstand

Posted by Steve Ross in elections, Shelby County, State Politics, TN Senate

Strange, and very out of character for the “stunt-baby of Germantown”.

Makes me wonder what he’s afraid of?

The people of SD 31 deserve better. A vote for Adrienne Pakis-Gillon is a vote for responsive representation. Early voting is underway. If you live in SD 31, get out & give her your support. Vote Adrienne Pakis-Gillon for SD 31.

Edited to add: I should have included this post from Jackson Baker to the mix, because it’s spot on. One of the problems of writing on an iPhone is all the steps it takes to bang out a post.

From the article:

Peg Watkins, president of the MSCLWV, professed to find Kelsey’s characterization of her organization “amazing,” maintaining that the League was formally non-partisan and studiedly neutral concerning elections. “I’d be happy to send him a copy of our mission statement,” she said.

And, indeed, when Kelsey was reminded that the immediate past president of the League, Dee Nollner, was a Republican, he grudgingly acknowledged the fact. “Okay, there are a few, but mainly they’re the League of Liberal Women Voters, and I don’t have time for them.”

Can you believe this guy?

Go read it if you haven’t already.
