You heard it here first – Matt Dunn comes in a close second. This article appears to be mostly fluff, making Louis appear almost heroic in his decision to withdraw his name from consideration.
“Even though I had significant support, it wasn’t enough for the majority and it didn’t make sense to contest the election,” he said, explaining his decision to drop out of the contest.
We hardly think that global warming was the reason that 50 states rejected Louis. Texas and California both challenged the nomination. Every other state neglected to second the nomination. Without a second to the nomination, and with two challenges we have a difficult time believing that Lou had “significant support”. In fact, our sources from the inside tell us differently.
Of course, the question remains. This question has not been asked by any local news source. Who paid for the trips while Lou was campaigning? Who paid for the other Freeholders and the Sheriff to attend what Lou hoped to be a media circus as he waltzed into the new job?
