Thanks to an anonynous tipster, we've managed to learn that District 4 Commissioner Alice Kinman is leaning towards "no" on the Oct. 4 vote.
Our tipster explains that Kinman (who is a pretty decent sort of Commissioner, and has some faboo ideas about sidewalks) likes the idea, but is hearing mostly opposition from the community. That could mean we are in the minority here, or it could mean that we're not doing our jobs and contacting the M&C with our side of the story.
Either way, it sounds to the crack editorial staff like Commissioner Kinman is not fully decided, and could be persuaded, if she sees some support out there for this.
So fire up the emails! Hit her with some blog-lobbying (or blobbying, if you will) right here.
The current whip count:
In Favor: 0
Leaning favorable: 0
Undecided/Unknown: 7 (Carter, Sims, Maxwell, Lynn, Jordan, Hoard, Chasteen)
Leaning unfavorable: 2 (Dodson, Kinman)
Opposed: 1 (McCarter)
Thanks again to our anonymous source. Be like that, give us the good stuff here.
