Leave it to our favorite suburban politico to do the unthinkable: Create an entertaining campaign Web site worthy of a read.
Alderman John Hoffmann
, the self-proclaimed "watchdog" of Town & Country, launched the site
last week in preparation for his April 7 bid for mayor.
The tabloid-esque site includes all kinds of dirt on Hoffmann's opponent, incumbent Jon Dalton
, including the fact that the current mayor serves as a tobacco lobbyist and represented developers in a controversial eminent domain lawsuit that took private property from a "widow."
Hoffmann also uses the site to clear up some points about his own colorful background, chronicled last October in a Riverfront Times' cover story
Dalton recently launched his own Web site
in which the mayor showcases his affinity for blue blazers accented with pressed white handkerchiefs.
