There’s been a lot of discussion (in the comments section of this blog and around town) about U.P. city council candidate Steve Cooke. Voters seem to be under the impression that Cooke is a member of Camp Huddleston. I spoke with Cooke today and was surprised to hear that he has never met Huddleston and has never spoken to him either.
Cooke said he received a voice mail about a month ago but he “didn’t recognize the name at first.” Cooke returned the call, left Huddleston a message and has never heard back from him.
Cooke also said he had no idea the sign with his name on it was going up on the Chase building. No one ever asked him or warned him.
