As J reported, Michael McGinn has announced his candidacy for mayor. Here is video of his announcement, and some of his Q&A. This video includes something new that I’m trying out… I’ve included a running commentary made up of twitter messages, and comments from around the ‘net.
McGinn lays out his three main priorities; Schools, Internet Infrastructure, and Transportation. He answers questions from reporters;
- Where has mayor Nickels gone wrong (McGinn has supported Nickels in previous elections)
- What is your position on the Mercer Project
- How will you work to empower neighborhoods?
- You think you can beat Dan Savage?
