Mayoral Hijinks

It might be hard to notice with all the hot Obama and Franken political action going on, but there is indeed a (nonpartisan) Northfield municipal election coming this November. Seven candidates filed by the July 15th deadline, including Carleton's own Paul Hager, but the candidacy that seems to be gaining the most traction on the ol' InterTubes is the "write-in campaign" of Carleton Bookstore textbooks manager Brendon Etter. His website and campaign blog might seem a little unorthodox, but given the sheer amount of turmoil that's taken place at City Hall these past two years, Etter would probably fit right in.
