Gilbert is out!

Gilbert pulls out of mayor's race, cites family reasons

Wow! Where did they get that picture of Pat Gilbert? That certainly has to be several years old. Is that back from his Vice Mayor days? I am pretty surprised that they had that electronically. In fact, I wonder if they had to break out the scanner for that bad boy. Just kidding!
It looks like Pat Gilbert is out of the race. I have to admit that I am a little bummed out about this announcement. Not because I would have been a Pat supporter, but he would have definately changed the game and made the debates more interesting.
So, as it stands we are looking at the following:
Scott Smith (announced)
Tom Freestone (exploratory)
Claudia Walters (exploratory)
Rex Griswold (exploratory)

$300 million

Cactus League Spring Training Fans Contributed More than $300,000,000 to Arizona’s Economy in 2007

I was digging around looking for some cactus league attendance stats and I ran across this. I also found that, once again, the Cubs had the highest attendance (Check Page 3). So, it makes me wonder: how much of that money is going into the Mesa economy?
