Re: “A Lesson for Progressives

Ron, don't be blaming a third candidate or "tons of money" for your loss.

You and Larry Glass talked the "third" candidate out of running last time around and as I recall you out-spent Jeff by about 2 or 3 to one and still you lost that election.

Elections are won or lost because of the candidate's message. Your message is usually, "I am right and you are wrong". We heard it loud and clear when you publicly claimed the "issues" were way over Jeff's head last time around.

We heard it loud and clear this time around when you took every opportunity to publicly advise the council and staff they got it wrong about oh so many things.

Once again you tied yourself to the HCDC Bonnie and Bill Pierson. You actually e-mailed a voter and said you didn't understand why the Marina Center was so important to folks when it so clearly was not the right project.

Hello! Sometimes you have to open your mind and listen. I think your message has clearly been that you have all the answers and don't need input to make decisions.

So the phony reason of having a third candidate in the race and tons of money against you is not where you should be looking. You lost because the majority of voters didn't buy your message.....and yes, that's why Jeff lost the primary. We did a poor job of getting our message out and "money" definitely was not a message that resonated with the voting public.
