Shunned by Keith Wilkowski, Toledo Mayor Candidate

Politics is sometimes interesting. I say interest because right now I do not know what phrase to use. I'm thinking something is really strange in the Keith Wilkowski campaign for Toledo Mayor.

As I have previously written, I have known Keith a long time, long before he ever became a candidate for Mayor of the City of Toledo.

Several occurrences have transpired that lead me to believe that since formally announcing his latest candidacy Keith feels that I no longer even exist or that I am not worthy of being acknowledged.

You may ask what type of occurrences would cause me to come to such a conclusion. Well, I'll tell you.

I have been getting lots of Wilkowski campaign crap in various internet social networks, like twitter which I may soon block due to lack of personal contact and like the Keith Wilkowski for Mayor Facebook group that I did drop due to lack of personal contact, and from Ben Krompak or other cronies from the Wilkowski For Mayor Committee.

Then, there is the small matter of campaign literature and invitations sent to my house addressed solely to my wife, Judy Hansen, who just happens to be an elected official herself as a member of the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing Board, serving in her third 4-year term. That is the same body to which I had been elected for three terms and had served twelve years before deciding not to seek re-election, but to which my wife then decided to seek.

At any rate, it is one thing to send campaign literature and invites to campaign social events to my wife and omit me but the biggest slap of all came in today's USPS mail. Today, I was somewhat aghast to see in the mail an invitation stating, in part:

Join us for a festive informative evening

Well, actually it is not the invitation that has left me aghast. It is the way the invitation is addressed. I mean, come on, what would you think if it were you - and you were Roland Hansen, the person who knew the candidate for many years (27+) and it was the candidate with whom you had worked with politically for years - and then you see the invitation addressed to:

Judy Hansen & Guest

What am I, chopped liver?

Amigo Roland,

"What am I, chopped liver?"

Perhaps, but maybe with a little too much schmaltz for that palate of a goyem...

Amigo Roland,

That's what I get for not looking things up first...

I was trying to say goyim, but Keith couldn't possibly be two people at once, could he?

I should have said goy.

Oh goy, oh goy, oh goy, I really blew that one. . .

I was going to say, "In his defense, KW probably had very little or nothing to do with the manner in which the invitation is addressed."

But after giving the idea some deeper thought, I realize that it is indefensible.

Roland,

It appears that political friendships are fragile things at best and sometimes more than a little self-serving. You should not look at this as a slap in the face however, but as an illustration of a badly run campaign.

A candidate unwilling, unable, or uncaring to understand generating bad feelings in any voter is a poor one at best, perhaps not ideally suited for the office he seeks.

What a pussy! A real friend wouldn't embarass a friend over something so silly. Wake up!

I find it interesting that a gutless anonymous flaming troll like Barry would take the time to comment.

The immature Barry claims on his blogger user profile to be a big fan of agape and philos, but apparently from his posted comment "What a pussy! A real friend wouldn't embarass a friend over something so silly. Wake up!" does not know the full meaning of the terms, agape and philos. Heck, Barry the gutless wimp does not even have the courage to use a full real name. That gives a clue about his credibility and the worth of his opinion. Zero, zilch, nada.

I wonder what the people who are in charge of the Keith Wilkowski campaign think of this Barry jerk!
