What is the facination?

The post I wrote about Ken Ulman’s resume (which I believe to be true – the post and not the resume mind you) continues to resonate with readers. Here is a visual on the stats.
Frankly, I am astounded that this post has has over 1,300 unique views since I posted this in October 2006. No one cared in November 2006. Why does this post remain so popular?
It is my ardent hope that some where down the line this resume issues will become a problem for Mr. Ulman’s political career. Although this was not an issue in the 2006 local election (I not going to quote Brian Harlin) I think, in the end, when the stakes are much higher the piper will come callin’. Someone with a lot more at risk and a lot more money will make sure this is an issue and make sure it will stick.
How do I really feel about it. I think that it is too bad. Other than the typical snypes I hear about Mr. Ulman’s continued smuggness, and the Crown Victoria he is driven around in while telling the press/public he drive a hybrid, I think he is doing a good job so far as an executive. I wasn’t too pleased about the budget – but not a whole lot of gripes. Considering the party and person in power it could have been much worse. With that said, no matter how well he does in his current position it will be over shadowed by the resume.
Deep down I admire Ken Ulman. Here is a young guy who knows what he wants and he goes out and gets it. I have always admired determined people who are certain about what they want in life. What distinguishes these kinds of people from one another is how they go about getting what they want. I don’t need to say anything else.
If he thought www.therealchris.com was a great idea, wait until Lt. Gov. Brown turns his guns on Ken in 2014.
PS: Regarding the PIA request submitted by The Examiner seeking overtime pay for County employees. Did anyone notice that the information was from the Robey administration? Considering Ulman’s administration doesn’t have a full year under its belt I suppose that makes sense.
