So we had the Rule #3 Party. As reported by Tom Saul, (finally) Fly was a no show.
Unlike Mr. Saul reported, Jen Olsen did attend, she was just a bit late. There was never a set time anyway. Both the reporters present had to leave to file their stories, so they didn't stay the whole time.
I didn't see Alderman-Elect Dumas there, but I believe he was.
Alderman Ambrose was the ONLY current alderman to not attend.
Neither Alderman-Elect VanFossen or his opponent Mr. Gibbs attended. I didn't see Mr. Franken, but I suspect he was there also.
Keith Meyer did show up, although him and his opponent didn't get together to buy each other drinks. I was told that Alderwoman Bushek and soon-to-be Alderman Hammerlinck did chat.
Craig Malin attended. I didn't see Ed Winborn. Some of the LOLs attended. Clayton and Dee did not.
In the name of full disclusure, I had drinks bought for me by Alderman Barnhill and Candidate Boom's campaign manager, Bruce Kenady. I don't plan to go any easier on either Barnhill or Boom, but I did appreciate the drinks. They clearly understand Rule #3.
However, since several people do not understand civility among political opponents, or do not agree with it, Fly was entirely within his right to not out himself. A comment from supposedly-Fly was posted over at SoLo, saying that he was there. I'm not sure if its really him that posted the comment though. I'm not sure if he was really there or not. There was a pretty good turnout altogether, and I'm sure Mac's appreciated it. Thanks to all who attended.
P.S. Maybe Fly WAS there?
Candidate Boom and QCI (and Fly) show off some yard signs that fortunately aren't still in yards.
