A Bunch of Windbags
The clear winner was Hertzberg because at least he had some things to say. Poopy acted like he was on Oprah until his outburst against Hertzy and Tony Villar. I was particularly impressed with Richard Alarcon who managed to stay above the fray and did a good job detailing his record. He came off kind of classy. Bitter Bernie on the other hand - well lets just leave it at that.
Rather than spend any more time on the debate, lets talk about Alarcon's campaign finance reform. All of the candidates seem to support a ban on donations from developers and contractors that do business with the city. I think to be fair you have to add in labor to that, AT LEAST the public employee unions.
So my throught is - who is going to be the first candidate to have the guts to say that city unions should not be able to donate to elected officials. I doubt none. But we'll keep the heat up on it here.
