Incumbent's Advantages

How many advantages can one candidate have? With the Sound Publishing Co. or "Reporter" in his back pocket, lots of money from his corporate backers, and taxpayer funded county brochures mailed out consistently in the past year, Reagan Dunn, the incumbent, needs 90% of the vote in the August 18th primary in order to claim a "win."

Meanwhile, the "Times" and the "" continue to look the other way at this council election, following the lead of the community corporate establishment that has not set up any candidate forums at all. They're all pretending there is no election in the 9th council district, that is, until the masses turns the tables on them with an overriding vote for Mark come November.
