Rodney Glassman, Go-Getter

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2007 at 5:23 PM

Democrat Rodney Glassman, who is seeking to replace retiring Ward 2 Councilwoman Carol West, turned in his nominating petitions today--which is the first day the city is accepting the paperwork. As you'd expect of such a go-getter, Rodney turned in the maximum 767 signatures.

Team Glassman also notes that fundraising efforts continue. Rodney is striving to collect roughly $45,000--which is about the maximum allowed under the city's matching-funds program--in the form of $20 checks. He says he's raised $33,500 so far and is the only candidate to have already qualified for matching funds.

Glassman may face a primary challenge from Democrat Robert Reus, who recently announced his candidacy. The winner of the Sept. 11 Democratic primary will face Republican Lori Oien.
