I'd vote for an auto mechanic

over any of these people based on experience. Can somebody run for this who has actually satisfied a customer, who paid with money?

So only former business owners need to apply?

I'm not sure I follow your logic, not the I disagree per se. But I'm unfamiliar with Ms Janey, so what's wrong with her record? I've gone on record saying I would not vote for Tito, and have reservations about Faulk, but what's the knock on this young lady?

All activism is begging

All activism is really begging the powerful for something. I'd like to see somebody who has accomplished something on their own terms.

As someone who actually lives

By on

As someone who actually lives in Boston, and is an active participant of the d/Deaf and hard of hearing community, we do not give a fuck about the stenographic record.

What d/Deaf people actually need is a video relay phone in the lobby of City Hall.
