Having probably written more articles on the Gay Games than anyone else in the world, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to point out who voted to bring the rowing regatta to Crystal Lake.
That information is an article entitled “Gay Games Honor Roll.”
Council folks running for re-election who voted for the regatta were Ellen Brady Mueller, Kathy Ferguson, and Howie Christensen. Their photographs are shown in that order.
In case you are from out of the area, Mayor Shepley is to the one with the microphone.
They voted for it the first time around when the motion lost because of a 2-2 tie and were in the three-person, second-time around majority that allowed the lake takeover.
