Slickest Politician

Dr. Ted Eastburn

Just how smart is Dr. Ted, anyway? Smart enough to sit at Bob Isaac's feet for a year-and-a-half before announcing a run for Council. Smart enough to use his engaging persona, his inspirational past and his sparkling good looks in a brilliantly successful campaign. Smart enough to turn his dorky Birkenstocks into a political asset. Smart enough to vote against the cable TV tax that voters are unlikely to approve. Smart enough to maintain cordial relations with everybody in town. And maybe even smart enough to be our next mayor when term limits force Mary Lou out in 2003. Remember, slick doesn't mean dumb. (JH
