Today, Columbus has the opportunity to do something it hasn't done since 1999.
Vote a Republican into City Council.
Matt Ferris is the first GOP candidate in years to have a legitimate shot at winning a seat on the council.
For all those folks who were upset about the Columbus tax increase or the out of control city budget, Ferris is your guy.
The good news? The grapevine told me Ferris' most vulnerable opponents haven't received the kind of cash at the end of the campaign that most competitive races get from the Party. This could mean Ferris has a decent shot at winning.
So for you...the guy in Columbus who wants a voice of fiscal restraint on Council...get off your duff and go vote. It actually does make a difference.
