I made a joke in another thread in reference to those who call Freman "Helmut" by noting that Sharon goes by "McPhail" and not her married name, "Sneed." But it later occurred to me that I spelled "Snead" incorrectly.

To check the spelling I looked first at SharonandBenny.com. No luck. It only says, "She is happily married with two children, Angela and Erika..." There's a picture of them all, but the caption only refers to "David." No last name mentioned.

Next I tried her section on the City Council's website, but nothing there except: "She is married and has two daughters." There's nothing more about the daughters or her husband.

Finally I googled both spellings and found Dr. Snead's biography from his current employer, the Waterbury, Connecticut, school district. Here we see a lengthy personal history, including references to his army days, education, teaching, administrative career and even his mother, but absolutely no reference to his wife, or his even being married.

What's up with that?

Apparently, they met at IHOP in '94 and got married in '95.

So, he was superintendent of DPS until he was forced to resign in '97? And then he moved out East? Trouble in IHOParadise?

Some more history

Oh dear.

It appears that perhaps Ms. McPhails husband is part of the problem that caused the school takeover in the first place.

He enjoys his job in Conneticutt. Snead was a much better man compared to Burnley's track record.

Of course! Thats it! Any questioning of Brians candidate is a ditraction by bored Sunday drivers! Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

And yes Quinn, why not? There are some serious allegations in the pieces I posted such as major doners to Sharons campaign getting plum contracts from Snead after being initally rejected by the Board. I think that is a valid and viable topic.

It's almost like members of the Kilpatrick campaign are starting these ridiculous threads -- as all they do are strengthen his cause.

Best case scenario for the Mayor -- Sharon and Freman's camp gets bogged down in minor and petty personal issues, tear each other apart and forget about our larger problem: the current administration.

...see'n the issues; wait'n for the responses.

Just take it at face value. There's no hidden plot to discredit anyone. It was just as Brian said, something I did while I was bored.

I just thought it was funny that Sharon barely mentions having a husband on her two sites and Dr. Snead doesn't mention his wife at all on his.

I did look at Helmut's site today. Like Sharon, he briefly mentions his wife's name, but goes on to brag about his children like a Jewish grandmother.

Well, looking at Freman's bio and the accomplishments of his kids, it is something to be proud of. Getting into the Business School here at Michigan is no picnic. Extremely difficult. And lo and behold, his son did it. Good for him. and it looks like his daughter is achieving great things as well. What's wrong with being proud of your kids? Granted it doesn't matter too much for the election, they're not on the ballot, but it's the last sentence of a lengthy candidate bio. Who cares? Why not talk about his kids?

Maybe the agreement was to have their own sepearate public lives, given the deep waters they have both delved into.

She might not do so well as Sharon McPhail- Snead in the public venue.

Itsjeff: Damn shame that you posted about Dave's "current employer" which is NOT his "current employer" at all!! Try former .... as he was lured away to another school district to serve as Super...!! Just a correction; but still a "Damn shame", since her family has nothing to do with the run for the job of Mayor, City of Detroit!!

Your post was intended to be a distraction or just some stupid ass schitt from 1 that ain't so stoopid!!

Black-atcha .... watching some "soap opera" BITCH schitt from a wannabe BITCH.

Oh and Freman's poo don't stink becuase his kids are great? What does that have to do with him being a good mayor? McPhail's daughters went to U of M and Howard and one is getting her masters in campaign managment from George Washington. That is just as impressive. So they both have great kids - good for them! Even though they may have downfalls in certain areas according to this group they did raise some good kids. So lets lay off the kids and get back to real stuff.

AND Snead did a lot better job of running the schools than Burnley and in fact his reputation is still good with DPS teachers. Being a former DPS teacher for 3 years (before I got out to make real money) I should know. But then again according to Metro I know everything.

ILOVE...didn't you used to be a Helmut-head supporter? I think that was posted on here by someone...

What did you think of Helmut when he was on the board...were you a teacher then? I really haven't heard anything positive or negative from my two teacher friends..they really don't remember him. Empty suit you said and I agree.

Ras, everything is as I described it in post no. 1. I wanted to get the correct spelling of "Snead" and tried to find it at sharonandbenny.com and on her site at the legislative section of the City's page. She downplayed her family and that's cool. Like you said, they aren't running for anything.

But it is curious that in David's page, where it talks about his schooling, military service, athletic background, job history and how he cared for his dying mother, it doesn't mention that he's married.

Still wrong "Ilovedetroit". According to your own erroneous claims...you are everywhere, at the same time. Don't give yourself too much credit there!

ILD, its a low point in Helmuts or KK's campaign when they seek to attack a spouse.

Sharon (and Benny) is too classy and too human to sink to their level.

Brian: Get it straight, nobody attacked David. And please, stop with the "class" crap. Your candidate doesn't qualify. Anybody who has thrown as much dirt on Kilpatrick, his mama and Carlita as sharon has should be in church right now. Oh, forgot, she was in church Thursday night and still didn't clean herself up.

The Mayor's family has been so disrespected during his time in the Mayor's office it isn't even funny.

I hope that when his young men grow up, they decide to take over this city along with their daddy and run this entire region!

I invite you to canvass my neighborhood and come knock at my door to tell me about your candidate. I'll show you some deserved disrespect.

Now, go report back to your committee tough guy.

You should be viewed as an untrustworthy turncoat. First you support Freman, then change your mind. Sounds like the typical Sharon type. Say one thing one day, then apologize and say you didn't mean it the next day.

Amelia - I am glad I did not believe the press in this city. I am glad that someone took me to listen to McPhail--after listening to her I realized that I had another,stronger,more intelligent choice. She will be the choice of Detroit intellectuals (I am suprised at the number of artist, activist, professors that meet with her) AND more importantly she still has the ability to connect with the majority of Detroiters. Hard working middle to lower middle class african americans. I had my McPhail button on today in a restaurant and all the waitresses were going by giving me the thumbs up and say "thats my girl"! I felt very proud of my candidate today.

REMEMBER I only looked at Freman this summer after I lost faith in KK. I was a supporter of him and I voted for him. One of my best friends works for KK in a senior position and he struggles with the fact that I don't support KK (I still care for my friend - I feel bad for him)...KK let us ALL down. When others tore him down I still supported him...that was until this late summer.
