Last chance to win

Kevin at BCR is having a mayor's race prediction contest. Entries are accepted until midnight. The person who comes closest to the actual outcome wins a $25 gift card to a local dining establishment.

No, i have no idea which local dining establishment. There are two dozen entires so far, so your odds are pretty good.

Will Thomas Stith's negative campaign resonate with Durham voters, especially in high growth suburban south Durham, or will Bill Bell's incumbency give him the edge? Step up and make your prediction.

Then back it up by going out to vote on Tuesday.

  • Have you seen the "Stith: Right-Wing Republican--Don't Be Fooled!" yard signs that have cropped up the last couple of days-?

    Truth in advertising at last!

  • Yes, i have. I hope they have their intended effect.

  • I was surprised not to see listed on them the name of the organization that funded them/paid for them...? Though one would naturally assume the local/state Democratic Party?

  • Surprisingly, neither yard signs nor robocalls require a "paid for by..." disclosure. Airplane streamers do, however. That reassures me.

    I've noticed those "Stith-Don't be fooled" signs seem to be disappearing. Could St. Thomas be pulling them?

  • it is surprising that yard signs do not require disclosure. perhaps another campaign loophole that needs to be closed.

    in the meantime you're right, some of the new signs that were up in my neck of the woods yesterday are not up today.

    it is a violation of the sign ordinance to remove someone else's signs, however. we'll see if whoever put the "Right-Wing" signs up files a complaint.
