The recent issue of Columbus Monthly magazine’s “Best of Columbus 2007” piece has a couple of winners that we’ve been discussing here at Plunderbund.

Best Lobbying Campaign

Dancers for Democracy. “They humanized their industry”, says CM, “portraying exotic dancers as young moms and college students trying to make a living.”

Best Politcal One-Liner

“Mr. Mayor, tear down this mall”, by Bill Todd. “What the declaration lacked in substance- Coleman does not have the power to demolish or do anything else with a privately owner mall- it more than made up for in style,” says the magazine.

Best Politcal Fight

Mary Jo Kilroy vs. Paula Brooks in the Democratic primary for the 15th congressional district. Ok- well, this one is a little out of date. As Lorraine reported earlier this week, Brooks has already dropped out of the primary.

  • I’m sure that first one is going to drive a certain Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle absolutely batshit crazy.

    Congrats to Sandy Theis and D4D!

    My pink D4D Tee will hang proudly in my office (thanks Dave).

  • Jon Sigmund

    Don’t retire that t-shirt just yet!

    D4D and other groups got enough signatures to meet the first deadline, but now the state’s validating those signatures and there’s a good chance there won’t be enough to meet the complicated state requirements for a ballot measure.

    Petitions are still being circulated and people who haven’t signed should do so!

  • Where do I sign!?
