Before I start rambling on about why I think the Journal Gazette Editors made the biggest faux pas in endorsement history let me thank them for giving a minor mention to the Libertarian candidates for City Council. Even as dismal as their theories and anticipation of failure are, at least they bothered to mention the third party option, where as before it was a fleeting chance of a swine in flight or the nether regions precipitating at a reduced enough temperature to induce a sealing effect, as to our candidates even being brought up. So the limited mention and commentary as to the chances of them succeeding, being described in the same manor as to our previously described chance of being mentioned at all, is found to be refreshing or at a minimum validating to a certain degree, that we are definitely creating fear in the Old Boys Club and they don't want the wave of change in how business is done in the Summit City.
Also on the ballot are three Libertarians: Doug Horner, in his first race for public office; William Larsen, who has unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for U.S. representative; and Michael Brightbill, who has been absent from campaign events.
The possibilities are even more complex because of the presence of three Libertarians on the ballot. Though none of the Libertarians is likely to gain significant numbers of votes, their totals could be larger than the difference between the No. 3 vote-getter (who takes office) and No. 4 (who doesn’t).
Voters can choose up to three candidates in the race.
Voters who favor one candidate above all the others may consider “bullet voting,” casting a ballot for only one candidate and reducing the chance that casting ballots for two others could actually help defeat the first choice.
