While plenty of ink and airtime is being consumed over City Council candidate Brandi Swindell’s web site pictures (are they glamour shots?) we have noticed that Councilor Jerome Mapp is decked out in what may qualify as “sartorial splendor.”
The gravel voiced incumbent appears to be wearing square framed designer glasses, flashy ties, and loose fitting light colored jackets which hang nice. The loafers are cool as well.
On the other hand challenger Jim Tibbs looks like a senior cop at a crime scene during interviews– serious with a full head of modish gray hair looking authoritative as he speaks.
After the Dan Popkey rant in Sunday’s Statesman, Swindell’s people came back with a demand for an apology about his “sexist remarks.” It could just be our imagination, but Council President Maryanne Jordan–Swindell’s opponent–seems to be getting a little lipstick going and blush on the cheeks that we haven’t noticed before.
All this has prompted some to speculate that traditional candidate forums will give way to SWIMSUIT COMPETITION only. We suspect there are many who just want to see Vern Bisterfeldt in a Speedo.
Alas, it isn’t so. The Women’s League will still have its time honored candidate forum Wednesday at the Boise Public Library 7-9 p.m. No swimsuits, but hopefully some good questions from the audience.
