Nick got the most votes 45% vs. 40% for the second place guy. ( 5,500 votes total )

However, there was a third candidate and took enough votes to cause a run off election 01DEC09.

Nick supports Disc Golf in CF...please take the time to vote on Dec 1st.

Email from Nick:

Dear Friends,
We were very successful on Nov. 3rd - we won the most votes (2517), we won the most precincts (11/14), and we beat the 'anointed' candidate. Now, we are seeing an ugly side of Cedar Falls engaging in divisive politics - either an odd strategy or a sign of desperation. But we can't underestimate the power of the the status quo.

We must rise above. We need to unify around our progressive message for a better Cedar Falls. We need your help!
Submit Letters to the Editor (write your own OR the campaign has pre-written themes too). Let me know if you are planning do something so we can coordinate scarce space for next weekend's edition.
Voter list review - review the Nov. 3rd voting list, find your friends who didn't vote or remind those that did; this is easy and effective. Let me know if you can help on Voter review!
Call/email Crews, Wieland, Runchey, and DeBuhr - let them know you are disappointed in their divisive, old school politics which has no place in our City. Council needs to unify, not divide.
Grassroots and Boots - write, call, knock, tweet your friends and colleagues to vote for Nick Taiber - independent, objective, and inclusive leadership on Dec 1st.
Help Light the Fire!
Nick

Sweet! Now there might be a real chance that Washington Park becomes a DG Course.

Money and Space

Postby Golfguy » Thu Dec 03, 2009 11:33 am

Nick mentioned that CF is in the running for a bunch of Flood Damage money...most likely to buy the flood land and turn into Green Space.

Green Space == Disc Golf Course Potential.

yah, yah, yah...another flood zone course...but, another course none the less.

And, YES Washington Park is under development. They want a world class course that will draw large tournaments to CF.

...cool...

Good to hear about the new course. Any idea when they plan on having it completed?

No idea about the new course...Nick only mentioned it in passing.

Nick mentioned his desire to make it first class...

Maybe someone in the actual club could comment.

Well I just decided to email the CF parks department.

They said its going to be a 9 hole course.

Also he sent an image of the concept design of the park. No information on how long until its complete.

9 holes will not make a world class course.

Who from the "club" is leading this project???
