My First Political Post

The quickest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't do it. With that in mind, I contacted the three mayoral candidates, Martin, Pavia and Maurer, with a few questions.

1. Which local blogs do you read?
2. Name one thing you have learned about Stamford from local blogs?
3. What is one thing you will preserve about Stamford as mayor?
4. What is one thing you will change about Stamford as mayor?
5. What is in your CD player right now?
6. Do you seriously still listen to CDs?
7. What’s your drink of choice?
8. How are you going to deal with the empty storefronts on Bedford?
9. What is your guilty pleasure?
10. How will Stamford’s transportation system differ in five years?

I asked that they write me back by October 30th, but I'm well aware they may have one or two other things to win the election. So, if and when they write back, I'll let you know.

In vaguely interesting other news, I saw Diana Ross at CVS in Greenwich today. She seemed to think she'd been spotted when I made an "ah ha" face, but I'd just found the vitamins.

Snubbed by Streets of Stamford yet again. And for a hack slimeball like LBC. Unreal.
