Brian Williams to Suspend Mayoral Campaign, Will Endorse Kennedy

Brian Williams, a Democratic candidate for Mayor in 2011 and a harsh critic of Mayor Greg Ballard's water and sewage utility sale, is expected to suspend his campaign and endorse Melina Kennedy. Kennedy was a deputy mayor under Bart Peterson, and currently is employed at the law firm Baker and Daniels in an "of counsel" capacity.

Still in the race, or at least considering to join the race, are current City-County Council representative José Evans and former At-Large Council representative Ron Gibson.

Personally, this is a great disappointment. I thought that Williams was the only candidate who demonstrated both a degree of independence and stood a chance of being elected in the Democratic primary.
