David White for Mayor: People first, back-alley out-of-town pay-to-play donors last.


For the record: I’ve never accepted paid advertising at NA Confidential — and I still haven’t.

The following passage supporting David White for Mayor will appear in many blog posts from now through election day. I’m explaining this to you, my loyal readers, so there can be no confusion: My advocacy for White is based on facts and principles, not payola (or as we call payola hereabouts, “Gahan’s Chosen Way”).

Democratic mayoral candidate David White understands that change begins with a whole lotta scrubbing, and NA Confidential advocates just such a deep civic cleansing. 

After eight years on the job, Mayor Jeff Gahan’s list of stunning “achievements” is long, indeed: tax increasesbudgetary hide ‘n’ seekself-deificationdaily hypocrisy, public housing takeovernon-transparencypay-to-play for no-bid contracts, bullying city residents and bullying city employees. Eight years is enough. It’s time to drain Gahan’s swamp, flush his ruling clique and take this city back from Gahan’s Indy-based special interest donors.
