As you heard here Thursday morning, yes, Sissi Bruch is running for County Commissioner.
Per the article in today's PDN, Sissi is quoted as saying "I'm going to go ahead and apply, and if (Doherty) runs, I'll withdraw."
Oh, good lord.
It's called a phone, Sissi. You use it to communicate with other people. As in, calling Mike Doherty to talk to him about this before announcing you're going to run. I know you have a phone, Sissi. I know you can get Mike's work number, and probably his home number. Hell, even I have his home phone number somewhere. Wouldn't it have been smart to just call the man? Wouldn't that have demonstrated, you know, your ability to plan? Barring that, couldn't you have just walked across the street from City Hall to the County Courthouse?
You've certainly demonstrated this jump in first, ask questions later approach to things on the City Council, Sissi, and it generally doesn't amount to much or sit well with people. It also costs money to sign up to run for Commissioner, so whether you intended to or not, you've also just announced that you're perfectly happy to waste money on these poorly thought out endeavors. So this is not exactly an auspicious start to your (maybe) campaign.
