Event gets Council Candidate Jack off to good start





17 candidates for City Council joined host Lance D. Jack (co-owner of Harbaugh's Cafe) at Hanger 9 tonight for a "Meet the Candidates" bash tonight.

Mayoral hopefuls Brad Cole and Maggie Flanagan showed, along with Sheila Simon, Joel Fritzler, John Taylor, Bob Gallegly, Pat Kelly, Priscilla Pimentel, Dan David, James Rooney and the others. The candidates who were NOT present on Sunday were Steven Haynes, M. Stalls, David McAuley, Andy White and Chris Wissman, Carbondale Nightlife who was noticably absent, but only because he was attending the wedding of a good friend.




. Other candidates schmoozed and snacked on appetizers, enjoying the conversation and great music by Ratliff Dean Thibeau, Jackhead and Tawl Pawl and his All-Star Band featuring Bruce Camden and Bill Carter bluesin' out on lead guitars.

And speaking of blues...

Blue who


When pointed out that Carbondale had never had two redheads on City Council before (candidate Flanagan is a lifelong redhead), Priscilla Pimentel agreed to change her hair color for the election. If she doesn't win because of her hair color, said Pimentel (who now sports a color the shade of Marge Simpson) she'd hate to think that was why she blew it.
