Fairhope's Super Tuesday Election Underway

Fairhope, Alabama

Dr. Lou Campomenosi

Turnout was light early this morning at city hall for the so--called super-Tuesday presidential primary election: several local candidates and issues are on the ballot as well, including the controversial school tax renewals.

Polls close at 7PM.

Fairhope resident and Baldwin County Tea Party leader Lou Campomenosi (clk) was the sole supporter of any candidate present: He said he is supporting Jackie Ziegler for state school board place one because of incumbent Matthew Brown's flip-flop on the common core repeal issue.

Brown also lives in Fairhope.

Campomenosi told a Times reporter he had taken time out from "grading papers" to come; he is a political science professor at Tulane University.

He said he worries about most educators in public schools being to the "left" on the political spectrum -- and possible effects on students.

(Most of the signs you see in the photo were removed by city personnel, because they violated election law by being posted on city right of way.)
