Thompson was defeated soundly in the primary and now wants Catlin's two year seat in December. Hickey tried to win the party's nomination for Davis's two month seat because he knows he does not have the support to beat White/Barfield/Zapple/Dawson. Hickey was defeated by a "wide margin" by Gott when the executive committee met this week. Gott threw a kink in this plan because she will not play ball with the good ol boys. Apparently, Berger mentioned at today's commish meeting that it was important for the commissioners to move forward and select an appointee immediately and that there were enough lawyers in politics and that the board should consider a "doctor". Hickey gets the appointment, gets a boost and wins in November and returns the favor by voting with his boy Berger to appoint Thompson. Sadly, a very strong female's reputation is being sullied by behind the curtain deals by the ol boys club. Hope she keeps on fighting.
