I have been looking for information on all of them. Right now, all I have is heresay, and rumored reputation. They need to get their campaigns together and introduce themselves to the public. We will be voting very soon! I would like the think my vote is an informed decision, but at this point I will be guessing.

Rayborn had a meet and greet at Lapping park a week or so ago.

 

I know him and Dave both, I like them both, never seen anything dishonest or shady out of either of them. I do NOT believe Rayborn is connected to the gang of 4, but I don't know about Dave. I may be wrong, but I never have been before.

 

I am not a Democrat.

This may just be me, but I've got to wonder at someone who proudly puts his nickname of "Diamond Dave" on his political signs.  I don't know him and do not vote in Clarksville, but I can't help wondering if Clarksville can afford Diamond's.

He owns Diamond Dave's jewelry on Lewis and Clark Pkwy. I don't know him but guessing that's why he has that for his political signs.

Thanks for the info!  That moniker did have me scratching my head.

Well, according to ICU, he owns a jewelry store and is running for office.  No reason why he cannot do both.

Wasn't Conn on the council before? Was thinking the gang went to town wide elections in order to get Conn voted out of office.

Only group I know Dave to actually be involved in is the Kosair Shriner.

He does own a jewelry store and is well connected in the community as well rather it is helping the youth leagues, the high school, Kosair kids, the elderly. Diamond Dave has done it all to hear others tell it. If you ask around you'll learn that him and his wife both have huge hearts and he isn't part of any gang of 4 or click. I would say Diamond Dave stands out as his own man. The name says it all he could be ordinary and use his birth name and maybe not raise as many questions but he is known as Diamond Dave and that's what we see on his signs. No need to put on a front like others to gain votes be yourself .

I do not know "Diamond Dave" personally. I'm not going to make judgement calls about him, at least not publicly. My comment was from a pure campaigning perspective and how his campaign is being perceived by me, and possibly others. His campaign can take it for what it's worth. It was simply an observation.

REMOVED DUE TO TOU VIOLATION - Q

I know almost nothing about this Diamond Dave fellow. One of the very, very few things I do know is how his supporter speaks of others, like calling people lazy.

Stay at home parents, some disabled individuals, the fabulously wealthy and all kinds of other people don't work full time jobs either.

It really wouldn't hurt you or your candidate to narrow the number of people you may offend.

I am not trying to be offensive. I am just asking questions and repeating things I hear as everyone else is doing. Sorry if I struck a nerve or hurt your feelings. Never my intentions. Popcorn sounds great Russell!☺ I don't have a definate candidate yet. I am not leaning towards Conn because I believe we have better options. Just my opinion.

{passes the popcorn} I don't think she was offended. I think she was actually offering friendly advice in a round about way. Sometimes it isn't anything a candidate may say that will do them harm, but rather what those who appear to be supporters may say, KWIM? I am fully prepared to sit back and watch folks tear the candidates down though (I have plenty of popcorn 😉), unless it's coming from anyone who supports me. In which case, I want to make it clear that I want to run a campaign that talks about my views and ideas as opposed to tearing my opponents down. I want folks to understand what I believe and how I will govern and make their decision based on that, not any mudslinging or belittling taking place by anyone who might be looked at as my supporter. Sorry, kinda got on a soapbox there. Return to your neutral corners and come back out when the bell rings.....
