It's been very interesting watching what's going on with the 1st District City Council race. Truth be known, the 1st District is the sexist District in the City. Anything of importance going on in Peoria, is being played out in the 1st:
The Museum, crime, Warehouse District, drugs, the Pere @ the Marriott, guns, Cat Visitor's Center, failing schools, new roundabout, crumbling sidewalks ... Sexy.
To have three people vying for one seat draws attention to the possibilities in the 1st - if the right person gets the seat.
Now we look to the Election Commission to make a decision on the residency of Gary Sandberg. We have all seen Mr. Sandberg take City Code and interpret the nuances in a way that any man can understand. That's what we like about him isn't it?
So, I read this and if the information is accurate, there just may be a loophole in the "district" residency requirement. But why would Mr. Sandberg want this seat via loophole? What would that do for his street cred, as the one guy who stands up for any man? AND, if Mr. Sandberg's understanding is that there is no district residency requirement, why is he going about the business of trying to establish one? Tricky.
