I am losing patience with Sean Reardon.
Even his supporters can only re-iterate the same message over and over again – “He’s a swell guy”.
His family and close friends say he’s a swell guy.
Thus, we’re suppose to vote for him because he is a ‘swell guy’!?!
I’m sorry, but this is bordering on the territory of conmen, demagogues, corrupt politicians and tyrants.
We’re suppose to vote for someone because that candidate looks good and talks smoothly.
I’m not buying it and I would suspect that, if elected, he will answer to NO ONE.
Oh, sure, all those closest to him will get a seat at the table.
But where is his track record?
What about listening to those who don’t get an invitation for his many parties?
I suspect that most in Ward 5 will not be invited to the reindeer games.
I’d rather vote for someone who has a backbone and understands the issues, and more importantly, is not afraid to state his views.
His many constituents may not agree with him but they’ll respect the fact that a real person with real convictions has a grasp on the complex issues that a city councilor, especially a ward councilor may potentially have thrust upon him.
Charging up San Juan Hill crying, “Onward, forward” won’t do.
Give the Ward Five citizens the information they need to vote in the race!*
* Or is there a reason they’re getting nothing?
