Champaign City Council

Of all the candidates filing to fill Kathy Ennens spot on the Champaign City Council, there are only two serious candidates, Deb Feinen and Patricia Avery. According to current reports expect the vote totals to go down this way.

  • Giraldo Rosales
  • Gina Jackson
  • Ken Pirok
  • Mike LaDue


  • Mayor
  • Tom Bruno
  • Vic Mcintosh
  • Marci Dodds

That's right Marci Dodds will, according to all reports not be voting for Patricia Avery and will be voting for Deb Feinen, creating a tie. Any comments?

It would be a big mistake for Dodds to vote for Feinen. Feinen was her opponent for the vacancy for Dist. 4. If that is the case than my opinion is that Dodds is probably doing that out of fear that Feinen would run against her, which again is not a good decision.

Why would that not be a good decision? If i were Dodds I would be afraid of running aginst Feinen in a district seat. She lives in a Republican district she made many of he district mad with her section 8 vote and smoking vote. I think it would be a cake walk for Feinen. so if i was Dodds I would vote for feinen.

"She lives in a Republican district..."

eh, I'd say she lives in a 50/50 district. I live there, and follow local politics pretty closely. Part of County Board District 6 is in Champaign City Council District 4. I can safely say that part of the district is Democrat, and part of it is Republican. It's hardly a lock for either party.

Also if she doesn't support Feinen she'd have lots more help in a race for that district than if she does vote for Feinen. If she does vote for feinen she's going to find herself pretty lonely when it comes to be re-election time

Feinen would be a great choice she is better than Dodds ask Rosalas he said so.

She is voting for her so that she won't have to run against her in the spring. Even a hard partisan knows that Deb would be a tough opponent for Marci.

I have a question. Is everyone so cynical that they have never considered that Dodds might support Feinen because she considers her better for the future of the council, and/or more importantly, Avery does not impress Dodds? Let me remind all, the council is supposed to be non-partisan, and yet, everyone looks for all these ulterior motives. Regardless, I will actually wait to hear why somebody does what they do, until after they actually do it and after they explain why. BTW, I live in Dodds' district and most of my neighbors speak well of her and her efforts, regardless of party affiliation. I find her bright & concerned. I see her at many neighborhood meetings and city outreach meetings. While I may not agree with her on all things, I believe her to be sincere and actually take her responsibilities seriously.

true. however Dodds clearly doesn't think that Feinen is that great, as she clearly didn't think enough of her to forgo being put up against her in her appointment.

Thus the motive...I think compromising everything just to avoid having a tough opponent and to hold your elected seat is a very bad decision.

I doubt Dodds would support Feinen just to prevent Deb running against her in District 4. Remember, Avery lives in District 4, too (a fact I'm sure Dodds is aware of). Marci has as much incentive to put Tricia in the At-Large seat as she would Deb. And Matthew's right -- District 4 is not the Republican district anonymous described.

Closer to the truth, Dodds probably gets a lot of pressure to be "non-partisan", and is afraid that a vote for Avery makes her look too partisan. However, Deb Feinen is every bit as partisan as Tricia Avery.

I suspect Dodds won't support either Avery or Feinen. I suspect she'll vote for one of the lesser-known candidates -- someone (like Dodds herself last year) who Dems can get behind, but who isn't as high-profile as Avery.
