Off to the Races
August's primary previewed
From the July, 2012 issue
No one's running against mayor John Hieftje this year-but plenty of candidates are running against his policies.
Two years ago, the mayor demolished blogger and City Hall critic Pat Lesko by a you've-got-to-be-kidding 84-16 percent margin. That may explain why he's unopposed in the August 7 Democratic primary, but it's hardly immunized him from criticism.
