I'm curious as to why so many wish to formulate opinions on me based on literally nothing. Quite simply, I believe that if you have a question about a person then you should ask that person directly. So I will take this opportunity to address the things being discussed here and also add that I have explicitly stated numerous times that I am more than willing to meet and discuss any questions the community poses concerning myself, my positions, and my intentions.
In response to Randy's statement that I was invited to be on the arts commission by the mayor, this is false. I was actually invited by Ron Edinger by telephone shortly after the conclusion of the election. I even gathered reference letters to apply to do so, one of which was written by Dan Gookin who I consider a friend. At that time I had just begun an Americorps position at Dirne Community Health Center. Americorps is the national version of the Peace Corps which was started by Bill Clinton, in case you aren't familiar with it.
More below. Thoughts?
