Ha, Ha, Ha; It’s Time For Santa Claws

Finch And Foster Campaign Standoff, It’s Adam’s Family Versus Jason And The Argonauts

September 15th, 2011 · 18 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics

Political campaigns are creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky–candidates Bill Finch and Mary-Jane Foster may be the faces of their respective campaigns–but it’s the strategists who drive the operations and make them ooky (what the hell is ooky?). Say hello to Adam Wood, Finch’s chief of staff and political yogi and Jason Bartlett, Foster’s campaign manager. […]
