Is the 2010 campaign starting in Pasco?



The first shot of the 2010 election didn't show up on TV, in the mail or a press release. To County Commissioner Michael Cox and the Democratic Party leadership, the blow came from the commission dais in usually quiet December.

Within a month of being branded the Republicans' top target for ouster, the county's only Democratic commissioner has lost his high-profile role with the Pasco Economic Development Council. This month, new Commission Chairman Jack Mariano, a Republican, named himself as Cox's replacement.

"I cannot find any other logical reasoning as to why he wouldn't leave me on there, given the fact I have had some successes in the PEDC, and some that he quite frankly doesn't even know about," Cox said.

The story is here.
