Remember how I said yesterday that anyone else, besides Cameron Runyan, who wanted to run for the city council seat being vacated by Daniel Rickenmann should probably get started?
It’s looking later than ever today, now that Mayor Steve Benjamin has stood out in the heat in front of City Hall (already sweltering at 10 a.m.) to endorse Mr. Runyan.
Not much to add to that. Steve said the usual things about how he looked forward to having Cameron help him with the things he’s trying to accomplish for Columbia, and Cameron giving back complementary compliments.
One point that stood out that he didn’t make yesterday: He said today that when he ran four years ago, it’s because he didn’t like the direction in which the city was going. Today, he says he’s running because he’s optimistic, and wants to be part of positive change.
That’s about it. There’s video, but it hasn’t processed yet, so I’ll put it up in place of the above photo after lunch.
Did I mention it was hot? Cameron called it “Famously Hot,” which is cool from an ADCO perspective…
