WORD ON THE STREET
Word on the Street is that Frank Laposta will not run for Troy City Council. Or jog for that matter. Frank is unhappy because the party dissed the guy Frank wanted to see run in District 2. Word on the Street is that Jack Mahoney didn't even know Frank's guy. Why would you want to run someone in the 2nd if Mahoney doesn't know the guy? That cat Mahoney knows everybody.
Word on the Street is that some Dems want Steve Dworsky to run in District 5. Huggybear is letting you know early so if you live there, you have time to get out. I'm just playing with you, Steve. You Da Man! Dworsky is best known for his quips, such as, "You have to realize that people have become disenfranchised with the Democratic Party. You need to welcome everyone in, not just the ones wearing three-piece suits." Man, who wears three-piece suits nowadays?
Word on the Street is that the Repubs are getting cold feet about endorsing Pascarell. Pascarell is the Democrat-turned Republican-turned-Democrat-turned-Free Soiler that has won and lost races for City Council since the Taft Administration. In fact, if the Huggybear remembers correctly, Pascarell once ended up running against himself and endorsing the other candidate.
Word on the Street is that administration officials now have to clear things with The Boss, Bob Mirch, even after Harry OK's something. Who's in charge down there, anyway.
