Op-ed: In race for mayor, a cocker spaniel should be able to easily defeat Bookmeyer

by Peter Children –

Eric isn’t fooling anyone, he’s waiting to see who will run against him before announcing whether or not he’ll run for another term. This tells me he has no sense of decency.

Have you seen the throngs of people gathered in the streets of Cairo, Egypt? That is exactly what will happen here, Central Park will be flooded with people rejoicing his decision to realize he is unarguably the absolute worst public official to ever hold office in this city….and in the only act of unselfishness he ever committed in his life, that and the promise of 25 cases of free beer’ he will not run.

Of course this is all only a dream….but what a wonderful dream it is….. We’ve all been living in a nightmare long enough. If only the entire council would resign at the same time it could escalate quickly into a wet dream.

In truth a Cocker Spaniel should be able to easily defeat him, but as added insurance I would ask everyone to say 100 acts of contrition and for good measure just rub a little olive oil on your forehead. (Vegetable oil won’t work) I realize hardly any of you have grape leaves, but rest assured I do. I will burn a few along with his picture in a bowl, that should do it.

No one should be mad or upset with Eric, you really can’t be angry with someone who is truly incompetent, dysfunctional and has no clue as to the difference between right and wrong. One more thing; most successful politicians have competent advisors that more or less surround and monitor them. They make certain no mistakes are made……it’s easy to see that isn’t the case here.

The real question in all of this sad tale isn’t whether or not Eric can carry the water, anyone smart enough to have a driver’s license knows the answer to that. No the real underlying question is quite simple….the real question is this; “just how much longer are the people who live here going to allow this sort of abuse?” Incompetency feeds on itself.

And now there surfaces 20 people who all got under the covers with Eric Bookmeyer. The mere thought of that will turn your stomach. This elephantine group has a big surprise coming as the election draws near. Some in that group will woe the the day when they agreed to go blindly into that dark night. Others…it won’t really matter because they are not far from Eric as it is. Some on that list just want what they might reap. Remember the hand picked group who were asked to submit a “expert” opinion on whether or not to build a $20,000,000.00 hockey rink near downtown? They all agreed it was the right thing to do…duh! Each member was hand picked! It was a classic stacked deck…but thank God it did not work.

As the election draws near, that bed they all climbed into is going to get very uncomfortable… can take that to the bank.

Truthfully there is no greater need, no greater argument, no greater reason to vote, than what lies a head of this community. We need, to break all records on going to the polls this November to cleanse this city, to put new blood in the mayor’s office and three new people at the council table. We need a council that will not automatically drop to their knees when the Mercy wants to destroy the equity in a dozen homes….won’t be so quick to fund a failed business plan at NIACC….a council that will restore the HR to a full service shop. Vote people…
