The left wing fringe did not just target the Mayor at the City Convention. As I predicted., they went after the Common Council.
Majority Leader Dunn chose not to run, so the committee nominated Lynn Eckert. Lynn has run before losing to Andi Turco Levin some years ago.
In Ward 2, Douglas Koop defeated incumbent Alderman Seche for the nomination. The weighted vote was 1533 to 886. This seems odd as it appears the entire committee voted instead of just the committeemen from ward 2.
The incumbents were nominated in Wards 3, 4, 5, and 8.
In Ward 7, the committee chose Bill Reynolds and rejected Maryann Mills. Reynolds of course is a well known liberal and Anti-Gallocrat.
Lynn Johnson is giving it another shot in Ward 9.
In ward 6, Tony Davis defeated Alex Panagiotopoulos in a very close race.
This is an unprecedented power grab by the left wing of the party. The City Democrats chose not to support three of their own incumbents. That's just shy of 30% of the city incumbents.
It remains to be seen how many of the rejected incumbents will primary. Gallo and Provenzano have already promised one.
