Moving and Shaking in Albany

Democracy in Albany posts about the Third Ward race shaping up in Albany where Soares campaign aide and 1100 organizer Corey Ellis is going to be taking on (down?) incumbetn Michael Brown:

Corey Ellis has announced his intention to challenge incumbent Michael Brown for the 3rd ward Common Council seat in Albany. From the TU:

"Our current representative has been a loud voice, but he has not brought hope to our community"

Now the TU refers to Michael Brown as "fiery". What makes one "fiery"?

Calling your fellow common council members cockroaches.

Sending out political mailings attacking your other common council members and using tax payer dollars to do it.

Refusing to show up in court for your involvement in a voter fraud case.I think a new voice for the 3rd ward sounds like a great idea.
