25th Ward Challenger Carl Coats Has Withdrawn from Race

January 6, 2005 Politics/Policy 2 Comments

Carl Coats, a former city building inspector, had filed to challenge Dorothy Kirner for the 25th Ward aldermanic seat. On 1/4/05 he withdrew himself as a candidate. Unless someone files tomorrow Dorothy Kirner will win by default. This is my ward – I was hoping someone would mount a good challenge to Kirner.

Click here for election filings. The primary is to be held March 8th but only four wards have more than one candidate. Darlene Green is unchallenged for Comptroller.

The mayor’s race will be interesting with Slay challenged by William (Bill) Haas and Irene J. Smith. I ran into friends last night – one of whom is black – both were very concerned Smith could win the race. I’m not exactly fond of Slay but I’m sure Smith would be worse.

    What about your friend who wasn’t black? What race was that person?

    (I’m not trying to be a jerk, I swear, just it kinda pesters me when people call attention to race only when it’s different from their own. It’s a common habit, but one worth droppin’.)

    [Claire, good question – I probably could have phrased that differently. This couple – one white and one black – were both afraid of the idea of Irene Smith winning the Mayor’s race. My point in mentioning only one was that he was of the same race as Smith. Thanks for speaking up! – Steve]
