TUT has first set of candidates for 2009 mayor, marshal
Two candidates have come forward to run for 2009 Tip-up Town Marshal and Mayor.
"Keep'r Cold" Carol LaRue is running for mayor and "Snowflake" Sue Lulis is running for marshal. They will run for office under the Gold Fish Party banner.
The team is working on a skit for the TUT Kick-off, set for Jan. 3, 2009. The theme for 2009 is "candy."
LaRue said she and Lulis are encouraging more participation and local interest in Tip-up Town. They are challenging other wouldbe candidates to step up to compete for TUT office. Opponents may run under the traditional Poor People's Party, or create a new party of their own.
