It's elementary, Watson
Let's examine the clues. Blogger Jordan Bateman, who has been publicly mulling about running for Langley Township councillor, writes that he will be really busy in the next two months, so much so that his personal blog will be really dormant.
Furthermore my dear Watson, his friend Sam Kirk writes that he will be busy running a political campaign.
So, Sherlock Hiebert says that Colonel Mustard did it with a candlestick in the library! Er, make that Jordan Bateman will be running for councillor after all.
Good luck Jordan. Hope you can pull it off. Perhaps he thinks he has enough name recognition that he can win a six week campaign, especially since he has run before.
It is always interesting to see people change from commenting on politics to participating in politics themselves. I wouldn't want to make the jump, but that is just me.
