Further regarding the disingenuous Carla:
Fact: Mr. Lindner was unable to attend the candidate's forun for medical reasons and the host was apprised of this 10 days prior.
Fact: Mr. Lindner has made many appearances before the Board; Mr. Liberi has NOT
Fact: Mr. Lindner's investment in our community preceded his running for office. We want to be represented by a party who has historical knowledge and understanding of our community, not a johnny come lately like the non-participatory Mr. Liberi.
Fact:Not everyone can attend every hearing and event and that a parent may opt to spend time with his children is to be commended, not diminished, by those with too much time on their hands.
Who precisely is "trying to retain a failed model"? That is NOT what Mr. Lindner stated. On the contrary, Mr. Lindner wants to effect change.
Race is not an "elephant in the room" but a matter for thoughtful discourse.
