The word floating around political circles is that Mayor Art Ward plans to tap his former campaign treasurer, Bob Dunlap, for another term on the Board of Finance.
Ward merely smiled coyly when I asked him about it.
He said he would let me know his pick on Thursday, when he sends it out to the City Council.
But there's no doubt the mayor is at least talking about the possibility of selectin Dunlap for the volunteer post on the powerful finance panel. Dunlap served on the board until 2006.
Ward flirted with the idea back in 2008, but ultimately didn't pick Dunlap, who was fined for failing to follow campaign finance laws properly during the 2007 race.
Dunlap lost his finance panel seat during former Mayor William Stortz's term. He was regarded as a conservative on spending and usually allied with the more tight-fisted members among the city's fiscal overseers.
