Edward TJ Brown[edit]

Kind of a politician, but google says that his most relevant work has been on a student senate. Radiant! 16:05, Feb 23, 2005 (UTC)

  • In my view, if you want to be a politican in any notable sense, you have to be elected to something. A few quotes from this article seem to indicate a certain lack of notability. "Brown has been outspoken on numerous political issues, and has achieved small notice in the Fargo-Moorhead area." Even big notice in the Fargo-Moorhead area isn't much. And placing "fourth place out of five candidates with 40 votes" in a race for mayor of what is by no means a large metropolis undermines claims of notability. I'm thinking this is vanity, and I really don't like vanity on Wikipedia. delete. -R. fiend 19:03, 23 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, 40 votes for mayor of a small town is not notable. Meelar (talk) 20:32, Feb 23, 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete I hope this doesn't sound mean or anything, but 40 votes in an election, even a local one, is pretty pathetic. Most of us, if we were running for something, could do better than that just with support from family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, and the like. As a result, I suspect he was running as a political exercise or as a joke, with no serious hope of winning, which does not equal notability. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 00:14, Feb 24, 2005 (UTC)
    • Just imagine how badly the fifth place guy must have done (his article coming soon, probably). -R. fiend 00:15, 24 Feb 2005 (UTC)
      • It was the fifth-place guy's own fault, actually. He fell for that old "I'll vote for you if you vote for me" trick. Andrew Lenahan - Starblind 01:19, Feb 24, 2005 (UTC)
