Highberger to run again for office

Commissioner has served since 2003

Lawrence City Commissioner Boog Highberger says he's going to run for office again.

Highberger, who was first elected in 2003, said this afternoon he intends to formally file for a second term at 4:30 p.m. Thursday at City Hall.

"We will deliver our filing papers to the City Clerk's office, then hold a quick press conference in the City Commission room," Highberger said.

He plans to make the event festive with fiddle music and homemade cookies.

Highberger is the second incumbent to announce plans to seek re-election.

Commissioner David Schauner confirmed his plan to run for re-election on Tuesday and made a formal announcement today at City Hall.

The third seat up for election on the five-member commissioner is held by Mike Rundle, who has not yet announced whether he will run again.

Two other candidates have filed for the April 3 election: Rob Chestnut, chief financial officer at Allen Press, and Mike Dever, owner of a Lawrence-based environmental consulting firm.

The filing deadline is Jan. 23. If more than six candidates emerge, a primary will be held on Feb. 27.

Schauner, Highberger and Rundle WILL WIN!!!! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Are you high? I will go out on a limb here by predicting you are 100% wrong. Not a snowballs chance in hell of this happening.

Remember folks, you heard it here first!

also, it is time for this town to switch to a ward/precinct system, so that city commissioners/aldermen whatever you call them, each represent a region of Lawrence. the commissioner from East Lawrence, the Commissioner from North Lawrence...just those two together could really change things!


love the "boogdoggle!" best post here! and, hey, what's in them cookies, anyway, mann?
while Boogie was the Lord Mayor, he once opined: "its just a little pot." yeah, and its just a "little vote."

biggest disappointment with BOOG ?

backtracking on LIVING WAGE you may or may not have my vote / depends on who else is available. very disappointed in your LIVING WAGE flip-flop. i thought that was part of your basic platform ?

but you voted FOR tax abatements for BERRY PLASTICS ? the amount of tax abatement is LESS than the whole living wage would have been ? please explain in public !

Well, after Rundle announces, we will be able to make a clean sweep of all three out of City Hall and into the street!

Thanks.

You go Boog! You've done a good job and the doomsayers prophecies of your extremism did not come true. You have been very balanced. Your slogan for this time should be "Come to Dada!"

Wwll, you don't have mine. Unresponsive city government is not my thing. I will not vote for any of the incumbants.It is time for a change. What ever happened to the police department citizen review board, Boog????? Just some more drivel from the current commissioners to fill some froth space in the JW. We deserve, and we need better than this group.
