Mallory Dumbfounded In Face Of New West End President's Election

Old president disputes new West End council election
BY HOWARD WILKINSON ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

WEST END - A Procter & Gamble executive who is a seven-year resident of the neighborhood was elected president of the West End Community Council on Tuesday night, one month after the group ousted longtime president Dale Mallory.

But Mallory insists he is still head of the neighborhood organization.

Tuesday night, in the gymnasium of Heberle School, council members chose Robert Killins Jr. to replace Mallory, the brother of Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory.

"I had an opportunity seven years ago to live anywhere in the city or beyond the city limits, but I chose to move my family here," said Killins, who is a manager of corporate contributions and community relations for P&G. "I'm excited about the potential the West End has."

Last month, the council voted to impeach Dale Mallory because of his support for the controversial CityLink project, a proposed "one-stop" mall for the poor and homeless to receive addiction treatment, job counseling and other services.

Shirley Colbert, the group's vice president, led the movement to oust Mallory, who is running this year for an Ohio House seat once held by his brother, the mayor.

Colbert, as acting president, appointed Killins as the new president; and the members present voted 28-1 to confirm her choice.

But Mallory has filed suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court asking the court to prevent his ouster.

Mallory was not at Tuesday night's meeting. In fact, he had scheduled a meeting of his own supporters - a group that he says is the real West End Community Council - but canceled it Tuesday afternoon because of the weather.

"They can call themselves whatever they want, but their action has no meaning," Mallory said of the group that met Tuesday night to elect Killins. "They're electing a president of the Shirley Colbert club as far as I am concerned. My last name is Mallory."

He's even more dumbfounded that his buddy Tim Burke wasn't able to get him the democratic endorsement.
His speach was inspiring...."elect me, MY NAME IS MALLORY....This has been a black seat for 40 years."
No joke that is the totality of moron Dale's speech.
The silence from the audience spoke volumes.
Eve gave a great speach and will win in a landslide.

Evidently the part of the West End that Dale is President of received significantly more snow than the part of the West End that Shirley Colbert is Presdent of.

Dale doesn't have any supporters. That is why he cancelled the meeting.

Did anyone notice that all the Mallory family (except 1/2 brother Joe) stayed waaaaay away from Dale as if he were a leper. The family, the West End and now the City is seeing Dale as the lowlife ootcast he is.
Dale, you messed with the wrong woman!
he also faked an "endorsement" list...1/2 those people support Eve.

Shirley Colbert (the lady Dale is sueing). Was at the Woman of the Year galla on Thursday. All the power brokers sympathized with her having to deal with bozo Dale. They praised her for her courage in taking on the Mallory Mafia. It's long overdue. Down with Dale! Long live Eve, Shirley and Killins!!!

Dale had the wrong idea in going after Shirley Colbert. That proves he is an idiot. He can't hold a candle to her.
