This year's mayoral election field in stereotypical Finger Lakes college town Ithaca, NY was shaping up to be the usual circular firing squad of leftists, greens, leftists, and leftists. In fact, there are so many party line Democrats in the race that the local Democrat party has chosen not to endorse a candidate. Our Ithaca correspondent suspects that this reticence to endorse may be explained by a reluctance to offend any of the politically correct sub-groups represented by announced candidates Pam Mackesey, Svante Myrick , JR Clairborne, , Dopey, Huey, Dewey, Louie, ....... zzzz .......
This morning on WHCU-AM, the Ithaca status quo was shaken up when Janis Kelly threw her fedora into the ring. Yes, intelligent, articulate, libertarian, female, gay Republican Janis Kelly.
Kelly will bring long absent diversity of thought to Ithaca's political echo chamber. For the first time in our history, South of 5 and 20 endorses a candidate for mayor of Ithaca: Janis Kelly.
