Yes, I realize I'm nuts. - Mark's Journal
Yes, I realize I'm nuts.
Are you registered to vote in the Town of Ithaca? Instead of voting for the unopposed incumbent, Herb Engman, please use the WRITE-IN spot and vote for ME. Please write in "MARK ANBINDER" for Town of Ithaca Town Supervisor.

Honestly, no, I don't expect to win. But I find Herb to be unresponsive and unhelpful, and think even a small flurry of write-in votes against him could be a useful wake-up call. (But yes, if elected, I will serve.)

Now I have an actual reason to go and vote this year. I don't believe that there are any contested elections or questions on the ballot, so I was considering shirking my civic duty.

But to vote for you? Absolutely. Let's spread the word and get out the (write-in) vote!

There are 4 candidates for the three Town Councilperson positions.

it's Danby in this area which has no contested elections.

I learned that there was a fourth candidate last night, and only because I followed your link in another post to track down the sample ballot. Local papers have had zero coverage of this "race." It hasn't even shown up in the Q&A segments the Journal has been running lately with candidates for various contested positions other than the Ithaca Mayoral race (which they've also continued). The only propoganda that I've seen has come from the three Democratic candidates (plus Engman) - two uninformative postcards.
