I confess that I have gotten a kick out of hearing certain very-City-High-focused people today suddenly sounding panicky at the prospect that many east-siders might now vote for Tuyet Dorau. It’s a bit late to wake up to the realities of political coalition-building and the dangers of overreaching.
I sure will consider Dorau. I now have at least one good reason to vote for her, and have yet to hear any substantive reasons not to – just a lot of “concern” and “suspicion” about her and her motives.
That said, I’m ready to take a breather from this topic. In a couple of weeks, we’ll know for sure who our candidates are, and I will be asking them all whether they favor reversing the decision to close Hoover (among other questions). Until then, I hope to enjoy the summer weather and read some good novels. Don’t hesitate to email me, though, if you’d like a Save Hoover yard sign. Six more went up today.
