Rich Lord of the P-G delves into the District 9 council race today. Money quote, care of Leah Kirkland:
You have a community that just looks like it's in so much disarray that it's kind of a turnoff.
That's pretty much been the consensus, unfortunately. At times it can be uncomfortably like reading this guy: LINK.
Most of the candidates get a plug in, except Twanda Carlisle, who continues not to respond to media inquiries.
Buried way down low, Lord condescends to report on the anonymous negative e-mail campaign being waged against Ricky Burgess, and on the substance of its claims.
Shadowy anti-Burgess activity is not limited to the internet, we would like to add. Ricky Burgess for City Council yard signs have recently gone missing -- wait for it, wait for it -- from the home of Burgess's own deputy campaign manager.
