      Baddourah, Coble, making final push to get votes before runoff election

      It was anything but T.G.I.F for District 3 Candidates Moe Baddourah and Daniel Coble are both hard at work going door-to-door.

      Both are trying to get as many votes as possible in Tuesday's runoff election.

      Coble said they have both learned a lot.

      "Politics is tough. It takes a lot of work, energy, dedication. I have learned that our neighborhoods are all very unique and different."

      Coble was in Melrose Heights Friday. Baddourah was in Forest Hills. The two were involved in a close race earlier this month. Baddourah led Coble by just over 60 votes in the April 3rd election; leading to next week's runoff.

      Baddourah prides himself on being a family man and restaurant owner. He said his experience is an asset.

      "I'm a businessman with a business common sense that will bring a balance to the Council. I will be the most experience when it comes to business, and think out of the box."

      Coble, a 25 year old about to graduate law school, and the son of former Mayor Bob Coble, said he is the one with fresh ideas by bringing a different perspective, and new blood to the council.

      "What people want in a City Council Person is new energy, new ideas, and enthusiasm. That is what I'm going to bring. We have had many debates and I have been at every meeting, every forum, every debate, answering all of the tough questions, and showing my knowledge on the issues."

      Win or lose, Baddourah said they both want what is best for their constituents, and that they enjoyed the experience.

      "It really has been a pleasure knocking on almost 8,000 homes in the past six months, meeting as many as 3-4,000 people, shaking hands with a lot of people. It really is an honor."
