Well, Jay Morrison will not be on the school board.
Morrison has withdrawn from the race citing an earlier Uptown paper of record report alleging he had engaged in a "scheme" to bilk credit reporting agencies by filing at least 18 lawsuits against them. Morrison maintains that filing the lawsuits was the only way to get credit agencies to correct errors in his credit history.
"It's impossible for me to win with this type of smear out there," Morrison told the Observer. "It would be a waste of my time and resources. I've got other things I can accomplish."
He's probably right about his electoral chances. School board races are about name ID and retail, press-the-flesh politics. The longer this story stayed alive, the higher his negatives would have been in a county-wide race. As long as Morrison could not disprove the allegations against him, he would be fighting uphill.
But wither the transit tax repeal?
