The Wallace Addition has legitimate concerns about streets, drainage and utilities that have been neglected for decades. The people there had to go so far as have a package approved in a citywide bond election for reconstruction that should be part of the municipal government's basic functions. (And they still haven't seen the work done because the council, including Mr. Bose, did not fund it last fiscal year when they had the authorization to do so.)
Jude and Kathy have dated for four years and I doubt he thinks of her as his "hispanic girlfriend." And I know he doesn't think anybody, no matter where they live, are shallow enough to vote for him because of her.
You can call me thin-skinned or whatever but I'll say this: The meanspiritedness and bitterness reflected in posts like this are disturbing to me. I think it turns people off to politics and discourages them from participation... which very well might be your intention. Brad Rollins
