In It To Win It

In It To Win It

Dear Editor;

First, there was a mention that if Lew Simon won his challenge to Chris Jorge that he would be the only local candidate for Al Stabile’s City Council seat. Then last week, you mentioned that you were ignoring third party candidates because you don’t think they have a chance of winning. With all due respect, that is fine as a personal opinion but not as editorial policy. I am in it to win it. I am tired of the Democrats and the Republicans wasting tax dollars and wasting our communities. Three "district leaders" are campaigning in this race. Our schools are jam packed with failing kids, transportation and parking are nightmares, and we get lifeguards in mid-July. They have the nerve to run? The leadership of both parties sold our communities out a long time ago. I am not investing my time and effort to make a point. I am running because I am the best candidate to represent our communities in City Council. I do not rely on consultants and reports. I have the personal experience in the issues that matter to our communities. I have paid for advertisements in The Wave to announce my candidacy and first fundraiser. I do not expect respect, it is my job to earn that, but I do expect acknowledgement. I am not a professional politician or a perennial candidate as it seems my opponents are. I am mad as hell that we get left behind. That will stop when I am elected in November. Thank you.
