it's unfortunate that mr soglin went over to the side of wanting a smaller, full time, "professional" easier-to-wield city council -- back when pro-rick phelps' factions of the democratic party and others wanted a seven-member dane county board of supervisors because his people could not win elections, didn't soglin have a clever word or two about it for the press and activists?
but i am still elated to hear that he is back in the race, naturally . . .

verily saith unto us:The mayor says the flood crisis the city faced in August is one reason he’s running again. He’d like to see through infrastructure improvements to help mitigate future flooding.
“The public’s positive reaction to the city’s response [to the flooding] did have some influence over my decision,” says the mayor.

on the second night of the areal/regional/lake-overflow flooding* on the near east side and other areas i was thinking much the same thing . . . they say it is not a good idea to change horses in mid-stream . . . how about when crossing a street which has turned into a river?
long live soglin! w00p!
now, there still needs to be 29+ more people running, of course, as pointed out in another post above.
* remember how there was a lot of flooding from widespread very heavy rains, the most significant in an area with its core running from la crosse to madison and little further, up to almost ~20 inches/~500 mm of rain for august alone in the autumn of 2007 and the same thing happened to some extent in 1992? then there was some ice-jam flooding on some rivers the subsequent late winter and the hose really got turned on in late april-early june of the next year . . .
