2)  Who Supports Trial D (that we know about)

Daryl Dudley, 4th Ward Councilman, who represents most of the above neighborhood associations:  Trial D
Gary Kespohl, 3rd Ward Councilman, who represents Benton-Stephens:  Trial D
Scott Atkins, WRC member and Atkins Corp. principal:  Trial D
Larry Grossman, former Add Sheet owner:   Trial D
Some people Mr. Dudley said he spoke to somewhere, but couldn't identify:   Trial D
And -- I can't believe I'm actually adding my buddy Jason to this group -- Jason Thornhill, 2nd Ward Councilman:  Trial A or D.
Here's George Kennedy on the Jason Factor:

"He told me he hasn’t made up his mind, but he’s inclined strongly toward either Trial A or Trial D. He doesn’t like E, he said, because of its impact on his current ward.  Trial A hasn’t drawn much support, so I put him down as a Trial D vote."
(In other words, Jason likes BOTH gerrymandering plans.  Oy vey!)

The Town Bosses (except Hank):  Trial D

(Watch for our upcoming "Columbia's Top Ten Town Bosses" Issue).

I know I'll be criticized for being disrespectful and maybe even elitist here, but I'm sorry fellas.  I just couldn't resist.  Think of it as a moving Darkow cartoon: 

Larry, Daryl, and Daryl
