First, SHERRI LIGHTNER is the strongest City Council candidate in District 1. Please get the name right! She is the only person in that race with a working knowledge of planning and development issues and the only candidate who cares about community over vested interests or ego trips. I agree with you: Sherri Lightner can win.
My deep apologies to Sherri Lightner for getting her name wrong. As an old reporter I am embarrassed and very sorry. I agree with Ms. Foraday that Sherri (got it right that time) Lightner can win. I hope to meet her someday.
