>Mayoral stuff

>Well Birmingham has another new mayor. Roderick Royal was elected City Council President so he is automatically the interim mayor until a new mayor is elected on December 8, or if there is a runoff, in January.

Birmingham is fortunate. They get several new mayors within a period of 3 months. Bessemer is stuck with the one we have. I have some thoughts, but I think they will be in my next Western Tribune column.

In the meantime, a video supporting Patrick Cooper for Birmingham mayor has surfaced, but its not the kind of video he necessarily wants, and definitely approved by the candidate. NSFW

But Cooper is right. He can’t control what people post. Jody Trautwein called it “inexcusable,” and that it (vulgar jokes) are “detrimental to the hearts and minds, and therefore to the future of this generation. You remember Trautwein…in “Bruno.”

Anyway, Trautwein is a believer and supporter of ex-gay ministries, which are all a fraud and in themselves are “detrimental to the hearts and minds” of the vulnerable kids and adults who fall for it. I’m glad he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance of being elected.

Recently an Ex-Gay conference was debunked here in Birmingham. Read here here and here.
