Severson for Vermillion Mayor! Tax Pot! And Madison Gal Makes News!

KELO interviews Vermillion's "pot-smoking mayor" candidate Nick Severson... who apparently takes a break from composting in his suit by sitting down at his laptop in the middle of the yard. The woman in the street KELO finds to express something like support for Severson's candidacy is Madison native Kristen Ericsson:

Ericsson's sort-of, not-quite endorsement:

Community members say, they're also paying attention. Some even think his decision to stay in the race is a good one.

"Especially because he's willing to, continue his campaign and I think he's brave and I don't know, that's honorable in my opinion that he's not ashamed of what he did,” Vermillion resident Kristen Ericsson said.

Residents say the recent controversy might lure more voters to the polls.

"I dunno, I think with the university, and the young kids here, that might be a popular thing, so he has a good chance, if the students vote, I think so,” Ericsson said [Cherlene Richards, "Mayoral Candidate Arrested for Drugs," KELOLand.com, 2010.05.02].

So why do all the progressive thinkers move away from Madison?
