Congratulations to New Charlotte City Council Member Warren Cooksey!


Oh-ho! As we mentioned in our voluminous Steve Saffel Photo Report on our Flickr page, one of our best customers has recently been running for City Council in Charlotte's District 7. Well, congratulations to Warren Cooksey for winning, in what purportedly was a landslide election! Now that we have a man on the "inside", we're going to get right to work on our plan to change the name of 7th Street to "Yancy Street" or "Greymalkin Lane" or somesuch. We'll see. Regardless, big ups to Warren! You can take a gander at his campaign website if you like, or our photo report, or heck--if you're really curious, you can verify that he really won, after all. Now that Warren is a successful politician, we understand if trust doesn't come as easy for you.

Democracy, 1
unthinking government, 0!

Uh, isn't Warren a Republican? That makes that score a lot more tricky.

Andy, where are you coming from? If it's uptown, just take 7th Street all the way. If it's from your house, I would take Randolph up to Caswell and then use the handy yield-right lane. Caswell hits 7th right at the store. You can probably glimpse any number of us in the store from the intersection. Heck, if you've got binoculars, you can start browsing from the street.
