Welcome to the race Mr. Recker. A piece of advice. Stop talking down to the people you want to support you. We do not require lectures from someone that makes unsupportable statements and has little knowledge of what this City is going through. I refer to your statement about a "higher agency mandating it." If you want to be creditable then stop with the rhetorical statements. You want to "accept reality" then accept the fact that the State and County have no money to give us. In case you haven't heard the state is mandating revenue reductions. State education is also about to take 1 to 1.5 billion dollar hit. I doubt very much that a city that has exhibited such heavy spending during the past two years will be taken seriously when asking for money. You claim the city simply "has to find a way to return to a level of political debate that embraces tolerance for opposing viewpoints and fosters participation from all sides", I share that observation. Unfortunatly you go one step further and imply that it is our citizens in attendance at our council meetings that are out of line and not the council that ignores them shows a lack of sincerity. We do not want another politician that intends to beat down their opponents with a gavel but one who is willing to listen and work for concensus prior to imposing financial burdens. Work on your interviews Mr. Rector, stop with the ego trip, you will be more likeable.
