MAYOR BEN DOVER SEEKS HIS THIRD TERM

ELECTION DAY HAS ARRIVED AND BRIDGEPORT CITIZENS ARE TURNING OUT IN DROVES, POLLS CLOSE AT 7:59 P.M.

BRIDGEPORT, Mn.

Now that election day 2013 has arrived, the in-fighting  between rivals Mayor Ben Dover and City Councilman Iken Doolittle is over and their futures are in the hands of the good people of Bridgeport.

Iken Doolittle
CHANNEL 1 NEWS has been following both candidates the last few months and the findings have been made public. 

Ben Dover
There is quite a difference between the two men, both privately and publicly.  Dover likes to govern like there's no tomorrow, while Doolittle puts things off until tomorrow, saying haste makes waste.  Dover has logged just over 12000 miles this year skipping around the world on city business, while Doolittle sprained an ankle skipping rope. Dover pushed a bill to make marijuana legal within the city limits so it could be controlled and taxed and also to discourage cartels from coming into Bridgeport, while Doolittle instituted a bill that would make Halloween a city holiday.  (It should be noted that Dover was all for another city holiday.)  Iken is a family man who stays home at night with his wife and children, while Dover is between wives, stating he is too busy doing the city's  work to settle down. (It should be noted that he was often accompanied by a troupe of  female "assistants" while on city business out of town.)

The differences between these two men goes on and on, but when it comes to Bridgeport, both men tear up when talking about the city.  Up until last August the men were friends.  It was then that Doolittle announced his plans to oppose Dover and run for mayor.  After the votes are in and counted, Dover has said if he retains the office, he will leave immediately on a fact finding mission to Brazil.  If Doolittle wins, he's going to Disneyland, but will be back by the following Monday..  

CHANNEL 1 NEWS will announce the results as soon as a winner is declared.
