I've spoken with some insiders in the Dolar campaign, and a steady stream of Greg Brewer's supporters have been emailing or calling Dolar's campaign staff to express their support and to volunteer. This bodes very well for Dolar, and comes along with the public support expressed by Brewer's Field Director Bridget Dooley and this Feb. 28 email from Brewer Campaign Manager Cottrell to Brewer's supporters:
I congratulated Naisy and her campaign manager today. The banner of change continues to be carried by Naisy and her campaign. I hope that all of Greg's supporters will choose to support Naisy in whatever way they feel appropriate.
I know that hard feelings can emerge after a campaign like this one. I ask that you set them aside for now. There is nothing that helps Bernie Stone more than for resentments to persist between challengers' supporters. Stone is still the target here. As Greg has said from Day One, this is all about beating Bernie Stone.
Many if not all of you will be contacted by Naisy's campaign. They know you have supported Greg. I'm asking that you support her now. Four more years of Bernie Stone is four years too many...
-- Alan Cottrell
So, I write this post in the spirit of reconciliation and solidarity against a common foe, and invite all of Brewer's supporters to help unseat Stone. With the picture as it was on Tuesday night, not voting for Dolar in the run-offs may basically be a vote for Stone!!
P.S. to anyone who tries to contact Dolar's campaign office this weekend, note that they are taking the weekend off to rest after a chaotic election week.
