Pawlowski's Luck Of The Irish
Residents of the West End, from 19th street to Ott, between Tilghman and Liberty think that Pawlowski did a good job with the snow. This neighborhood, bordering into the west end, contains many super-voters. In reality, the area was plowed curb to curb to facilitate the St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday.
Reports from elsewhere in the city aren't so good. The school system had to hire a contractor to clear the school fronts, because the city's snow removal was inadequate.
The only thing wrong with my political analysis in the first paragraph is that it is incorrect. Unlike 2013, 2009, and 2005, that west end neighborhood does not belong to Pawlowski; It will likely go to Ray O'Connell. Likewise, Charlie Thiel and Sam Bennett have strong sections of the city, and have been working hard for the nomination. Although, they all read this blog and my predictions, none of them concede the advantage to Pawlowski. The Democratic Primary this year is a real horse race.
