Return of the Draft?
So I'm doing some work late in the office one evening last week, and something came through my fax which caught my eye. Caught both of them in fact. Devoid of any fax header, it was a press release of sorts captioned "THE DRAFT DOROTHY BROWN FOR MAYOR COMMITTEE BEGINS FORMATION". The fax touts the Clerk of the Court's "results oriented management and integrity", which seems to not so subtly infer that it is believed that these qualities are presently missing from City Hall.
Through a incredibly odd coincidence, I happen to recognize the contact person listed on the 'release' as belonging to a local consulting outfit. But just who is having them do this is beyond me, although you could formulate a couple good guesses relatively quickly. The only other info was a website (which consists of one page with no additional information on it) and a phone number (which I wasn't going to bother to call).
Now as the only other Louisiana-born local elected official, I like Dorothy; but this thing is just odd on a lot of fronts. It will be curious to see how she responds when she is inevitably asked about this issue, which may be just why it was sent out to start with.
