I am writing as a follow up to the City Council Meeting that I attended this past Tuesday where I spoke regarding the diversity officer position.
I have watched previous meetings and read about them in various media, and have know of the micro-managing of the Mayor since she was elected two years ago. But to see it in person for the first time, I must, say, was really upsetting.
The dismissive and patronizing way you addressed Mayor Spicer reflected very poorly one you. Admittedly, you are not the only councilperson to display this rude behavior; however, you represent my district now and will be asking for my vote in the upcoming election for you as Councilor At-Large.
You were not elected mayor. Yvonne Spicer was. Why would I want to give one of my votes for the at-large seat to someone who is an obstructionist and has not supported any of the positive changes that have been put forth for the City?
I may reconsider if you were to make a unifying statement toward the Mayor, and pledge to work with her if you are elected. Otherwise, the five registered voters at my address, along with my friends and neighbors in District 1, will be voting for only one candidate in November, and it will not be you.
