We Post City Attorney Shannon's Memo To Mayor, Council Verbatim
(April 16, 2002, posted 5:30 p.m.) -- City Attorney Robert Shannon has publicly issued a memo to the Mayor and City Council advising that Beverly O'Neill's name and Norm Ryan's name cannot appear on the June, 2002 Mayoral runoff ballot.
Mr. Shannon notes that the primary results have not been finalized and for purposes of analysis assumes the current count will hold (i.e. that Beverly O'Neill received the most votes as a write-in candidate, followed by Dan Baker and Norm Ryan, in that order).
