Special Report - Mr. Schneider’s campaign workshop a success!

Our roving reporter just phoned in the following report on this morning’s nonpartisan campaign workshop at the Norwood Health Department:

“Approximately a dozen Norwood residents attended. Mr. Schneider’s presentation was excellent, showing he’d done a lot of preparation. He covered important deadline dates (2/22/07, 4:00 p.m., at the Board of Elections is the filing deadline for partisan candidates; and 5/7/07, 4:00 p.m. at the Board of Elections is the filing deadline for independent candidates); political parties; networking; campaign finance, including complimentary cd.’s for everyone, etc. A Q & A session followed, then folks just networked and socialized. Judging from some of the conversations I had, there seemed to be some potential candidates for council as well as other city offices, and a good time was had by all.”

2/14/07 UPDATE: Mr. Schneider has provided us with a statement regarding his positions on the subject of levies, much discussed in the comments box for this blog: "I am totally against renewing the emergency temporary levy (8 mill renewal levy that expires this year). I don't think we constantly need to renew a temporary levy meant to be temporary. To put a levy on the ballot that's earmarked for a specific thing, like streets, public service or safety, I'm for looking at what the city needs. I'm in favor of that and letting the voters make a decision on whether they support that kind of levy or not."
