We need someone that will not just fall into line to continue the same old same old. But step out with new ideas, a fresh approach to so many social issues and introduce legislation that will move our city forward.
Additionally, Patrick Mara, easily understands that money doesn't grow on trees. Just like you and I we must not only balance the budget, but also curtail spending on frivolous programs programs that are geared to appease just a few residents rather than the majority.
I think today could well be a defining point in District politics and one of those "special elections" that gets talked about for years to come. The change we all can "really" believe in, perhaps.
I encourage everyone to vote and to make it count. Stand up for change and change that is badly needed.
