Oh Li Li, you're so silly. You keep touting people at high levels and then name people at much lower levels when you're cornered on naming them. In addition, you exchanged some emails with Andy Shaw. Big woof. He said he admires your dogged commitment blah blah. Based on what? What you wrote him and told him? If he knew how you conducted yourself and really saw you for the unstable person you appear to be - he wouldn't be so praiseworthy. But just for grins, let's say he knows the full story, has watched the village board meetings and wrote that he admires your dogged commitment. So what? He's one person and not high level. All a comment like that would do for me is make me wonder about HIS sanity. Keep trying though. You've obviously convinced two or three people of your greatness so another five years of posting delusional blather may get you up to eight or ten.

Plus two PR consultants that she's convinced herself are part of her coalition. How can you continue to delude yourself?

Yawn. Total waste of time. No one cares about your worthless coalition, and your shameless self-promotion and hucksterism are really lame. Shouldn't your friends at Kurth Lampe be doing a better job helping you promote yourself? Or are you getting what you pay for with their services?
