New Birmingham, Alabama logoFolks had until yesterday to qualify for the August 25 municipal elections for Birmingham’s City Council and Board of Education. Runoffs if necessary would take place on October 6. That meant that I’ve spent most of today trying to find out how many of them have a web presence. The results follow below.

We start with the list of candidates running for City Council’s nine (9) representative seats. It starts after the jump.

Andre, I am running for district 2. My website is treshiacoleman2009.com. I can be found on Facebook and Twitter. Join my campaign fan page as well. We are revising the website so please excuse the blandness of it right now. Btw, I have zero felonies, never been arrested, no parking tickets, nada. Sorry to disappoint you Jeff.

I wonder if you added up all of the felony charges from the candidates if it would outnumber the candidates?
