Now it turns out Fifth Ward City Council Candidate Lennie "The Heckler" Chism has his own utility issues...
The address he lists as his residence, 2519 Emerson Ave. N., had a "lack of utilities" as of 4/20/09. Click here for the City of Minneapolis property website.
Unknown if that situation has been rectified since then, but when I went by there recently I noticed nobody had picked up the phone book.
And those things were dropped off, what? A couple days ago?
Does Lenny Chism actually LIVE at the address he lists? Inquiring minds want to know...in NoMi.
In the meantime, the situation with the property at 2519 Emerson Ave. N. is another good indicator of whether Lennie is up to the task of renovating the "Uncle Bill's" location, just like the condition of his property at 1901 Glenwood Ave. N.
A persistent defender of Lennie keeps telling me on the back channel that Lennie has serious financial backing. And I keep saying Lennie needs to trot out his proofs, not just make grandiose verbal comparisons between himself and the great visionaries of history.
