OBSERVATIONS: While Brian Williams' (BWMS) initital announcement as a candidate for Mayor was done last August it still is noteworthy as we move forward into 2010. As the first declared challenger to Mayor Ballard (GBAL), this marks a big difference from the first re-election bid of Mayor Bart Peterson. Is this a sign of possible vulnerability for the incumbent, we think so as another candidate has also made her intentions known. Candidate Williams is a relatively unknown comodity even within his own party however there is boost that a candidate receives as first out of the starting blocks in a high profile race.
UP: BWMS $105;
DOWN: GBAL $130
