Ed Springston couldn’t be more off-base about Councilcritter Vicki Aubrey Welch. She won her race because she worked her rear end off and because people like Mike Bailey and myself worked to get her elected. Walking door to door, volunteering dozens of hours per week, helping her get things going. The entire Democracy For America organization stood up for her and helped get her seated.
Jerry Abramson and his administration had nothing to do with her campaign. If you’ve spent any time around her in public, you know her thoughts on the Mayor. And they’re not all puppies and rainbows, as Springston would wrongly have you believe.
We also stood up for Kevin Triplett and were disappointed when Vicki didn’t bring him on in the beginning as her aide. We lobbied for it because we felt he was the right guy for the job and didn’t want his talents to go to waste after losing to loopy Marianne Butler. (I mean, her own family members stood up against her)
Long story short: Ed needs to be a bit more careful about the rumors he spreads.
