SPEAKING OF HEINER: Apparently Rick Redding posted an article on the ulocal page at wlky.com stating that I speculated Chris Thieneman was holding out for a Deputy Mayor spot as part of any endorsement by Chris of Hal Heiner for Mayor. I don't know if he was planting seeds or just did a poor job of reporting, which seems to be a habit of Rick's lately, but sorry folks that is simply untrue.
Chris has never said anything of the sort nor have I ever promoted any idea that he had. In fact Hal would never sell out like that nor would Chris even demand such a thing. Both have too much integrity for such shenanigans based on my personal experiences with them.
Chris has never requested anything nor made any request a part of any endorsement for Mayor in this race.
Chris has been the leading activist for Southwest issues for years and continues in that role today. He has stated the only way he would officially endorse anyone would be if they were sincere and will fuffill the promises of working on the needs of the Southwest community.
With no strings attached by Thieneman in any way. According to Chris and Hal it has been hard to meet because of conflicting schedules. They will be meeting soon to discuss the needs and concerns of the Southwest community.
Sorry Rick but facts are important.
