It comes down to Stoney vs Morrissey for mayor

PHOTOS Levar Stoney by Scott Elmquist (Style Weekly) / Joe Morrissey from his recent mailer

While I have had my initial impression of Jack Berry turned by conversation with supporters of his in the area, the mayoral election in the 7th District comes down to a considered choice between voting for Joe Morrissey or Levar Stoney.

The key factor is this: a mayoral candidate has to win a majority in 5 of the 9 districts to win outright, or we get a run-off election in December between the 2 candidates who received the most votes. With the most recent poll showing Morrissey leading in 5 districts (including the 7th), there is a very real chance that Joe Morrissey wins outright on Tuesday.

Here in the 7th District, Stoney is running second and Berry in third place. While Berry has an office on 25th Street, Stoney has been much more actively been courting Morrissey voters up here, and has the endorsement and support of the local Democratic Party. To be blunt – Berry does not have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the 7th District. Levar Stoney, though, could take this one away from Joe Morrissey and help force a run-off.

Come Tuesday, you are either voting for Morrissey to win the 7th, voting for Stoney to win the 7th, or voting for someone else and hoping that the 3rd District prevents Morrissey from winning outright.

I’m excited to cast my vote for Stoney next week. Morrissey is an embarrassment who just keeps providing more horrifying reasons why he should not be in elected office. Or any kind of position of power where he can abuse young women for that matter.

this is inaccurate, Berry and Stoney are effectively tied (within margin of error) in the 7th. Whether or not Stoney is the best choice, this post shouldn’t just state Stoney as the most promising challenger in our district.

You should not tell people this bs. I wouldn’t vote for either those crooks. It makes people think they should vote for one of these to prevent the other from winning that dumb. vote for who you believe in.
