Ed Pawlowski and Michael Donovan, running as an independent. A month ago, with Pawlowski being able to use the arena as a giant photo opportunity, I would have considered running against him a fool's errand. Since that time, it has been revealed that Pawlowski is simultaneously running for Governor, giving Donovan an unexpected issue with which to challenge Pawlowski. Also, there is an organized constituency disenchanted with Pawlowski over the sale of the water system, and permitting the trash to energy plant. These factors certainly add up to a starting point for Donovan. When it comes to campaign funds Donovan will be at a distinct disadvantage. When it comes to media balance, that remains to be seen.
