Nickels’s Lackey

Posted by on September 16 at 10:25 AM

The Mayor’s Boy, Casey Corr, sent out a suspicious press release this morning.

He writes: “Today, I am once again calling on Council President Jan Drago to follow my leadership and put the Monorail on the ballot. In today’s Post-Intelligencer, Jan Drago is once again missing in action on this question. As council president, she shouldn’t wait for the mayor to propose a solution.”

Funny. Corr’s press release, hyping his call for a re-vote, came about 20 minutes in advance of the Mayor’s press release. (Nickels press release announced a 2pm press conference, where he’ll make a statement about the monorail.)

Do you think Corr got a little briefing from the mayor last night, and so knew exactly what the mayor was going to say today, and was able to send out a coordinated press release that would make Casey look like a bold leader…rather than what he is: Team Nickels’s class pet and lackey.
