Progressive

In 2001, Dave Jones endorsed Polly Hart for the City Council and called District 3 a progressive island in a conservative sea. Fair enough. Well this year, that same Dave Jones has endorsed Councilman Eric Jergensen. So what is Cliff Lyon talking about when he walks around labelling people for political reasons? I don't know either.

Are you back to the endorsements issue again? First, you pointed out Democrats who had endorsed Eric instead of Janneke without mentioning that those endorsements were made before Janneke was a candidate.

Then you attacked her list of endorsements for being a bunch of Rocky cronies. Now that the list has grown to include quite a few people who don't necessarily support Rocky I notice you have been silent on that issue.

Then several unions, groups and professional organizations endorsed Janneke and you commented rather flippantly that this now means all carpenters have to vote for her now. Ignoring or being ignorant that the endorsement means that these organizations think Janneke is the candidate more in line with their organizations goals and values.

Now you have come back around full circle to pointing out a democrat who has endorsed Eric prior to Janneke being a candidate. I suspect that since during Dave Jones '99 mayoral campaign Janneke's mother hosted a house party for him and volunteered on his campaign that if Dave knew that Janneke was going to run for this seat he would not have endorsed Eric. Or maybe he would.

Have you bothered to scrutinize Jergensen's list of endorsements as closely as you have examined Janneke's? Or does your hero worship prevent you from questioning why Davis County loves him so much?

At a recent debate at The University of Utah's Hinckley Insitute Candidate Forum, Mr. Jergensen discussed the complexity of the role of councilperson.

It's blowing my mind to see Cliff posting under all these different names. You can tell his "style" (using the quotes to denote the sarcastic use of something he does not posess), it's just this side of hysterical as if wallows through self worship.

Hey, Cliff, you're not fooling anybody posting under different names. Didn't work for Dow and Jan, wont work for you either.

Don't you think that you'd be better helping your candidate (who, I've noticed, you have listed UNDER YOURSELF ON HER CAMPAIGN WEBSITE, you egotistical hump) and not getting into a pissing contest in the blog wars?

Sorry to disappoint you Reed L. Clegg, but last time I checked I was a real person and not Cliff's alter ego.

Jan Lovett, whoops Cliff, ah ah, I mean Janekke has exactly what we need for district three. She has plan that we stole from Howard Dean, ah, I mean Dow, Jan....ekke, wrote it herself. (I can't wait until she is elected, than I can rule the world!)

After hearing Janneke debate against Eric... I must admit. She seems to be the better candidate.
