I never thought I would be saying this but: Loretta is the best choice.
Wow, I have been wrestling with the choice of who to vote for in this City Council race. It has been very difficult for me for several reasons but, let’s face it, it’s a binary choice. I know Loretta’s weaknesses and strength but I don’t know Ryan who I understand was in charge of the Hands Raised a program to help close the achievement gap. Since the education achievement gap has not closed but has widened, I can’t see anything on his resume that makes me want to vote for him. Secondly, I would not like to have someone on City Council who is likely to have a ring in his nose being lead around by JoAnn Hardesty. She has already gotten too arrogant for my taste. Despite my concerns about Loretta’s questionable choices, holding grudges, and being full of herself, she is the best choice, particularly for the black community.

I came to the same conclusion. He’s fine, but we need CHANGE. If we don’ t make equity reforms NOW…when will we do it, exactly? I voted for JoAnn too, tho i can’t always agree – we needed Shelter space at Wapato long ago and she got in the way. i respect her tho for speaking out and bringing marginalized voices into the conversation.
