"...Incumbent Betty Dunkerley, now the council's Queen Bee, isn't going anywhere, so it's a puzzle that perennial candidate and citizens' communication-time diva Jennifer Gale has chosen this spot for her seasonal effusions. (She's also about $40 in the hole already on 80 bucks in campaign income.) If Gale dropped down to overcrowded Place 3, she'd have a chance to make some waves here she'll be a maid of honor to Dunkerley's coronation...."
"...You know it's campaign season when perennial candidate Jennifer Gale leads a room of Realtors in a rendition of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." Gale, after a brief hiatus to run for council in Dallas, is back in Austin and on the ballot to fill Place 4, currently held by outgoing Mayor Pro Tem Betty Dunkerley. At a council forum held by the Real Estate Council of Austin, Gale not only played song lead but also promised to field a National Football League franchise for Austin..."
"...Doyle Valdez also won handily in the vice president's race, beating Jennifer Gale by about a 2-1 margin. That Gale received even that many votes surprised many, given the perennial candidate's string of unsuccessful races..."
"...This race has been of particular disappointment to some AISD watchers who had hoped for a more substantial pool of candidates to fill the at-large spot being vacated by the outgoing veep, Jerry Carlson. The field in this case consists of Doyle Valdez and perennial candidate Jennifer Gale..."
"... Last but not least, perennial candidate Jennifer Gale, only six months gone from Austin, has thrown her hat into the ring for mayor of Dallas. According to the information Gale supplied to the online survey from The Dallas Morning News, she has run once for Congress, six times for mayor, four times for school board, and five times for City Council, all since 1990..."
"...Wynn may have wrapped up all the establishment endorsements and the deep pockets, but next to Thomas he looks like a brunette Napoleon Dynamite. He may feel the need to convince any wavering West Austinites that should he ever need to bodily evict Jennifer Gale (also running, inevitably, for mayor) from council chambers for singing off-key, he can do the job.How to Hold Down Turnout..."
"...The editors' logic is fuzzy, but the gist of the argument appears to be garden-variety anti-unionism if the firefighters want it, voters shouldn't. But that was trivial beside the editors' adamantine courage a few days earlier, when they stepped up boldly and endorsed incumbent AISD board President Doyle Valdez against perennial candidate Jennifer Gale..."
"...Jennifer Gale: Gale first ran for school board as a high school student in Madison, Wis., in 1977, and in the last decade she has run unsuccessfully in at least 15 local races. In 1998 she ran against Valdez and won 34.2% of the vote..."
"...I hadn't felt this way until recently. I was looking forward to Garcia, Will Wynn, Raul Alvarez, and Danny Thomas all running for re-election, all drawing token opposition (unfortunately, Jennifer Gale can only run in one race at a time), and having a campaign about as enlightening as watching the green grass grow..."
"...He's also loaned himself just under $2,000. Perennial candidate Jennifer Gale reaped $48 in nonitemized contributions and a $500 loan; real estate locator Ken Vasseau garnered $10 while spending almost $1,100 on signs out of a $2,500 loan to himself..."
"...Jennifer Gale: Transgender former Marine and perennial local candidate (www.jennifergale.com; not updated since Dallas mayoral bid)..."
"...A fourth filed candidate, Samuel Osemene, a Navy veteran pursuing a political science master's degree from UT, has spent $1,300 of his own money. (Perennial candidate Jennifer Gale reports $12 in contributions, none of it yet spent.)..."
"...Finally, some recognition! I'm glad you guys finally put Jennifer Gale on the cover. Well done!..."
"...Toll Party poster child Casey Walker, unsurprisingly, made a real showing in the Southwest, while Andrew Bucknall picked up extra votes east of the highway. (As did the redoubtable Jennifer Gale.) Notably, Dunkerley did best this time in parts of town where she lagged in 2002..."
"...Of the remaining Place 4 candidates, perennial candidate Jennifer Gale has the most name recognition, having previously run (several times) for council – and mayor, senator, governor, and school board. Gale is known for her chipper, singsong moments at City Council meetings, if not her policy positions: banning buildings over four stories and swelling the council size to 30 members..."
"...Jennifer Gale, Austin's permanent candidate-for-office, last lost to U.S. Rep..."
"...The City Council this week will have the rare (well, not all that rare) honor of seeing Jennifer Gale officially launch another bid for office. The former rival of Mayor Gus Garcia will kick off her campaign to unseat Rep..."
"...If the question is "How do we fix Austin politics?" your answer probably won't be, "Pay Leslie and Jennifer Gale to run for office!" Surely, you wouldn't want to go there...."
"...The report admonished the university for failing student athletes: "Texas' football players put the University on the national stage. And what do they get in return? Besides the precious few that will make it to the NFL, most will leave school without a degree and with few career prospects." – Justin Ward Gale Rumor Untrue..."
"...Dear Editor, I was more than a little shocked to read Wells Dunbar's characterization of Jennifer Gale in the Dec. 24 Chronicle [“City Hall Hustle: Gather Round Yon Virgins,” News]. He describes Jennifer's campaigns for public office as "quixotic,” a description that could be applied to any Democrat running for statewide office, including our own current state senator, or any Republican running in Travis County..."
