Fracas in the Fifth . . .

This morning, a website called www.dropoutjackie.com was brought to my attention. You gotta check this out. It's an open letter asking Council Member Kell to drop out of the race.

Now, for those of you who don't know, Jackie Kell is the current Council Member from the 5th Council District in Long Beach. She is nearing the end of her second term. There are terms limits in Long Beach. Technically, they restrict an office-holder from appearing on the ballot for an office they have held for two terms. So, Ms. Kell is running as a write-in candidate. This is apparently much to the ire of Gus Ceballos. Mr. Ceballos is the name registered for this domain name.

This is race is one of the heavyweights in next years municipal elections, and so far, it's living up to its expectations. I'm sure we'll hear more about this later . . . we'll see how long it takes the local press hounds to sniff this one out . . .
