Like Anne, Kevin Swanson, a student from Oberlin College, says he, too, plans to vote for Herrera in the upcoming election.
Why? Uhhh, because he was his boss.
On the campaign's blog, Swanson gives us the SparkNotes version of his summer break working for Herrera and details why he plans to vote for his former boss. He explains how he was at "the front line of one of this City's most hotly contested Mayor's race in the past twenty years." Then, he cuts to the chase: "I know Dennis Herrera will be the Mayor our City needs, with no strings attached."
Now that's a good way to secure a job upon graduation.
At least with Anne Herrera, there was a reason behind the "duh" factor of her e-mail. She's got serious swaying power with Herrera's supporters. But we can't imagine that Swanson's vignettes of "What I Did Last Summer" will bear equal weight with voters. Yet, he's assured us he'll be flying home from school in November to get out the vote for Herrera.
So, there's two votes for the city attorney.
Next time we get an e-mail or blog post from a mayoral candidate's dog, third cousin or uncle, what we want to know is: Who will be their second and third vote? Because, you know, that's what really counts.
