‘Never give up’ mayoral candidate Doug Krause ran for mayor in 2007 and lost. It happened again in 2011, and then again in 2015; and then he ‘gave up’. Could that happen to this year’s mayoral candidate Benny White?
Word on the street has it that Tiffany Stevens, also a candidate for mayor decided to run in order to split the vote, clearing a path for mayoral candidate Scott Wehrli to win the election for mayor of Naperville. It wouldn’t take much to tip the scale by splitting the vote. It should be obvious which vote could be split. Think about it. It’s the ‘third rail’ in politics that’s the hot topic that everyone tries to avoid, but everyone knows exists. It’s taboo to talk about it.
It’s baseball. Wehrli leans right with Cubbie blue, while both White and Stephens supposedly are flaming Sox fans. Stephens has all but disappeared from the campaign trail, however she could pull enough votes from White to guarantee him a second-place finish thereby jettisoning White down the same road as Krause, unless he ‘gives up’ sooner.
