|City Councilman Iken "Ike" Doolittle |
promises to clean up City Hall and rid
it of bad breath.
"I'll do what it takes, " he told CHANNEL 1 NEWS at an impromptu announcement party at the Bridgeport Pollen Collection Center. "Most people have no idea I am a guy who isn't afraid to drink diet colas, aspartame or no."
Doolittle, 43, is a self taught breath odor evaluator working free lance out of his home. "Its something I dreamed about doing when I was a kid", he said. "Basically I take deep sniffs of people's morning breath, especially those with breath inundated with coffee and other known bad-breath makers to test how good mints and mouthwashes work or don't work. The information I collect is invaluble to the fresh breath companies. It's fun and I get time off if I get a head cold."
Doolittle is also a family man and in his spare time likes to scrape gum off the bottom of restaurant tables, theater seats, and sidewalks. "It's something the whole family can do together," he grinned. "If I'm elected Mayor, I plan to get serious about cutting taxes and refinishing the chairs in the city hall council chambers."
CHANNEL 1 NEWS will follow Doolittle's campaign up to the election and plans to do a story on his private life.
