Back in May I put the odds of Richard Irvin running at about 80% it turns out I was right on that one. He is going to run, he has referred to being mayor as his life's callling.
So we have Linda in, Richard in, Alderman Mike Saville is thinking about it and Kurt Becker is thinking about it (but would have to move to town).
The Beacon (behind the paywall) also had some stuff about Richard being really complementary to Tom, I think it is safe to say that Saville would be so complementary to Tom that that you might think that he is Tom's PR guy.
If Becker doesn't run and you end up with Linda, Richard and Saville, it may end up that Linda will end up being the least complementary to Tom.
Think about that... Linda will end up being the anti-establishment candidate.
