The intrepid Aaron Mesh has been hunting down our Mayoral Madness semi-finalists in real life, ambushing them at their places of work with a flip cam andan unquenchable thirst for the truth. You can see his revealing interviews with legal eagle Jody Stahancyk and University of Portland soccer wunderkind Micaela Capelle here.
Yesterday, he managed to pin down 87-year-old Columbia Sportswear big boss Gert Boyle for this candid phone interview:
Boyle has plenty of opinions on the city's actual politics. Asked who she'd vote for in the real mayoral election, she replied: "Not the lady. And not Smith. So who's left?"
That leaves Charlie Hales, Mesh said.
"Doesn't it, though?" quipped Boyle.
In her own race, Boyle currently has 107 votes, to Timothy Hutton's 1,320. You can vote for her here.
We're coming for you next, Hutton. We know where you work (because Leverage trucks are taking up all the damn parking in the Pearl).
