Ed Oakley had his tape measure clipped to his front pants pocket when I ran into him at the presidential town hall hosted by National Stonewall Democrats at Station 4 the other night. Oakley’s property management company does a lot of work for Caven Enterprises, which of course owns S4, but Oakley may also be sizing things up on another front.
Oakley said he wouldn’t rule out a bid for his old District 3 City Council seat, currently occupied by Dave Neumann, in 2009. Oakley also said it’s too soon to judge the performance of Mayor Tom Leppert, who defeated him in a runoff last year, given that Leppert is working with seven new councilmembers. Although he appears to be keeping himself busy, Oakley acknowledged that he misses being closely involved in city affairs. He also noted the lack of an LGBT representative on the council.
