the next race
I had maps of the last time the seat was contested. See the election returns for Banahasky, Purcell and Walko in the spring 2006 primary for the 20th State House District. O'Toole mentions Paul McKrell as being interested in the race. He must have moved out of the 21'st district where he once looked to run. I kind of wondered if another 21st district denizen would move a few blocks to be eligible to run for this seat. That is nothing more than idle musing to be clear, but I speak of Len B. who I suspect must live within blocks of the district 20. It would be a stronger base to leverage his Lawrenceville support actually compared to District 21 where he, Dom Costa and Brenda Frazier really split the vote a nearly perfect 3 ways in the last election. I also just realized, this must be the mayor's home district as well. Who knows what that means?
Of course there is this other question of who is going to take over the as the chairman of the PWSA which might be a position in the news.
