Ogden City Ward 2 Council Candidate Jennifer Neil Gets Hit By Car While Out Campaigning - Updated

If you'd like to give Ms. Neil a little helping hand while she's unable to get out and raise her own campaign dough, now would be a great time to pitch in

Bad news in the Ogden City Ward 2 City Council General Election race, as we learned yesterday evening that regular WCF poster and Council Candidate Jennifer Neil was hit by a car (inside a cross-walk) while out campaigning yesterday afternoon. We talked with her this morning by phone and she reports that she was taken to the hospital for x-rays and related examination. Fortunately there were apparently no broken bones or serious internal injuries, but she's nevertheless pretty banged up, and most likely will be unable to resume actively campaigning for at least the next couple of weeks.

I feel lucky to have her as my friend!
Your blogmeister has of course been a friend of Ms. Neil since at least the early nineties, and couldn't possibly be more in agreement with the above assessment. No doubt about it. Above all else, my friend Jennifer Neil is blessed with a legitimate and genuine...
It's in that connection that we'd like to refer you all to Jennifer's 2011 City Council Campaign Blog where you'll find a PayPal donation button prominently displayed in the upper left sidebar.

If you'd like to give Ms. Neil a little campaign finance helping hand whilst she's laid up, and temporarily unable to get up on her feet to raise her own campaign dough, now would be a great time to pitch in, with only 54 days remaining until the November General Election.

Otherwise I guess you can just all sit on your abundant buttoxes, and let that lame and arrogant right wing socialist Godfreyite, Hyer, just take the Ward 2 Council seat by default.

I seem to recall this Jennifer Neil person back when I was her ward Bishop. 

Now that I'm Stake President, I command Relieve Society lady Jennifer neit to "stand down."

I have just ordained and blessed Richard Hyer to take over and assume my former Ogden Ward 2 Council Spot.

I say this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Pay no attention to Ward2 Council Candidate Jennifer Neil, nor to anyone else who doesn't hold the LDS Priesthood.

I'm ordained by God to be your next Ogden City Mayor.

Whatever you do, my LDS friends, DO NOT SCREW THIS ELECTION UP!

So sorry to hear the news, Jennifer.  How can I get some signs to put up in my neighborhood?  I also have a check for you.  Which hospital are you in or are you home?  Give me a call when you can.

Jennifer Neil said...

Thank you Dorene, I am home and available by phone (which is listed on my blog, latest entry.  You can call before you come to make sure I'm home and I still have signs left.
