As a Ward 8 resident I feel like I have seen/heard more pledges and promises for Ward 8 in the past month than I have in the past 3 1/2 years. If Ward 8 meant this much to our political leaders why have we been left in the dark for so long? I'm sorry but it will take more than a few token gestures to erase my memory. It should take more than a few token gestures to sway your vote.
It is an oldie but goodie, "Actions speak louder than words."
So with that said, I will not be covering these suspiciously timed "announcements." This is not targeted at any particular candidate, I just can't be bought for so cheap, so last minute. This is the equivalent of a guy calling you at 11:00pm for a "date." If it looks and sounds like a booty call it IS a booty call. Call this the ultimate booty call -- the political booty call. If these recent "initiatives" were really meant to improve the quality of life and economic development of Ward 8 it doesn't need me (or even you) to point it out. The proof will be in the (organic) pudding so to speak.
They don't call it the "silly season" for nothing -- although I reserve the rights to "pandermonium"!
