And let the County Commission know that you won't stand for them to steal the election for Roland. Let them know that you want someone independent and unaffiliated with this race to fill in District 29 until the next election. Let them know that the person who fills the seat should be the type of person voters would choose to represent the district. The phone number is 545-4301. The districts and their represntatives are here:
George S. Flinn, Jr.
Walter Bailey, Jr.
If you don't know your district then look here.
I'm just running off at the mouth, but I suspect the best chance we have to sway a Republican may well be Bruce Thompson. He tends to be somewhat moderate, isn't close to the party leadership, and isn't running for election. If you live in District 5, make sure you call. John Willingham also tends to be a bit of a maverick, although his running for the mayor's seat may make it less likely he would buck party pressure.
