Columbia mayoral candidate and Eastside Tavern owner Sal Nuccio (left) has announced that he will not participate in any candidate forums, while notifying CARE@Paquin chairperson Sean Spence of his decision not to attend the Paquin forum.
Given his cavalier and self-promotional approach to the mayor's race last time, which seems to be repeating itself this time, the Columbia Heart Beat has removed his name from our mayoral poll. Being used as a tool of self-promotion isn't cool, especially since this publication is the result of plenty of hard, uncompensated, volunteer labor.
If Mr. Nuccio wants to promote himself and his tavern, he's free to do so by buying an ad. Should he start acting like he actually wants the job and the hard work of being Columbia mayor, we may consider restoring his name to any polls or mayoral race coverage.
UPDATE: Mr. Nuccio left this comment after he was restored to the poll. Placing him back with the other candidates would have necessitated starting all over again, eliminating their votes, so he was placed in a separate box.
