canada goose deals Probate Court Clerk Chris Thomas has made a point lately of advertising his availability for the office of Shelby County Mayor.

canada goose https://www.canadagoosejacketonlines.ca store With the voting population of Shelby canada goose outlet phone number County split so visibly right down the middle between Republicans (mostly white) and Democrats (mostly black), a premium is canada goose outlet germany necessarily placed on a candidate’s ability to capture cross over votes. canada goose store
Thomas indicated his awareness of that when, faced with a question from the Dutch Treat audience about the school funding issue, he gave a reply that closed no doors.
But canada goose factory outlet vancouver he will stay reasonably close to canada goose outlet black friday sale his ideological base both for strategic and ideological reasons. Still in his ’30s, canada goose outlet website legit Thomas is something of a a true believer, a Golden Boy of the Right.
For years he backed the presidential ambitions of Pat Buchanan, as an canada goose outlet in toronto example, and, during his tenure on the Memphis school board, as he recounted Saturday, he was an outspoken advocate for the idea of “moral” instructon in the public schools.
canadian goose jacket Not only might his orientation (which Thomas and his supporters canada goose outlet would prefer to see as adherence to principle) restrict his natural constituency, but he has another canada goose outlet online problem on his hands. canadian goose jacket
Marilyn Loeffel, Thomas’s only conceivable rival for the affections of Shelby County’s ultra conservative populaton, is herself still thinking of a mayoral race. Moreover, Thomas’ professions of interest had not, as of last week, anyhow, dissuaded her from such thoughts.
Canada Goose Parka Clearly, the presence of both Loeffel and Thomas in next year’s Republican primary would seem to nullify the hopes of either, in that a dual candidacy would clearly canada goose outlet michigan fracture the common ideological base of support. Canada Goose Parka
buy canada goose jacket Loeffel, however, thinks that she has outgrown such type casting in the three years since her election to the commission as a spokesperson for Cordova and its predominant streak of conservative populism. buy canada goose jacket
canada goose black friday sale “The canada goose uk opportunity to serve on a body that considers the point of view of all segments is a broadening experience,” Loeffel maintained recently. “You begin to see things from other people’s perspectives, and you have to keep in mind what serves the greater interests of the community.” canada goose black friday sale
Canada Goose Jackets That sounds like the rhetoric of a candidate who thinks she can escape her political label well enough to capture middle of the road votes. She, after all, is a woman, and recent elections particularly judicial ones have seemed to demonstrate that there is a women’s canada goose outlet toronto factory voting bloc significantly greater than the number of voters who have a knee canada goose outlet store uk jerk aversion to a woman’s serving in office.

But canada goose jacket outlet uk her voting record on the commission may serve to limit her voter potential as canada goose outlet 80 off severely as Thomas’ ideological pronouncements might limit his. Loeffel has become so predictable a “No” vote on fiscal issues that every new utterance of the N word, coupled with a characteristic bob of the head, seems to be a video replay of the all the ones that have gone before.
Canada Goose Outlet And Chairman James Ford’s insistence on pronouncing her name “low ful,” instead of the correct “lef ful,” which he must canada goose outlet vip have heard several hundred times, may be at least a sidewise indication that something about canada goose shop uk her doesn’t dig as deeply into public consciousness as a mainstream candidate would need to.

canada goose clearance A sleeper candidate but one who, on the strength of his recent achievements, should be taken seriously is county commissioner Tommy Hart, who has confided to friends and colleagues his interest in becoming county mayor. canada goose clearance
canada goose Asked about his current intentions after Monday commission meeting, Hart at first attempted dismissive rhetoric. “Would somebody who had just taken the lead in doubling the wheel tax and who was the 7th vote for a 33 cent property tax increase and the 9th vote for a 43 cent increase be seriously thinking of running for mayor?” canada goose
He then went into the “I have canada goose outlet nyc no plans…” mode of potential candidates canada goose jacket outlet who have not yet finalized their “plans” but are known to be canada goose outlet uk fake in dead earnest.
canada goose coats on sale Acknowledging as much, Hart said at length that he had yet to decide but that, indeed, he thought he had something to contribute and might end up making the race. His interest along with Loeffel and that of another commission colleague, canada goose outlet online store review Buck Wellford, who will not run for reelection next year but is still considering a mayoral run makes a remarkable statement, considering that the commission, in raising both the county property tax and the wheel tax to help fund education, has just made one of the most controversial decisions on a pocketbook issue in local political history. canada goose coats on sale
cheap Canada Goose Maybe it’s arguable that, as Hart and Democratic mayoral candidate Jim Kyle (who as a state senator was in the middle of several legislative controversies) maintain, someone willing to take a stand and demonstrate leadership will gain rather than lose from it. We may yet get to test that thesis cheap Canada Goose.
