Monday, June 1, 2009 |Children’s Pool beach and seal solutions have certainly taken up a lot of inches in the press. Before the media and attack dog types pounce on Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, consider her first six months in office rather than just one day. She has been a hands-on helper in our community, proactive rather than reactive. Before the cake was even cut after her installation as City Council representative, Lightner was there for U.C. when the Marine F-18 crashed into a neighborhood of University City. She continues to try to solve community problems, and she makes her staff available by having them in the community, listening and acting on our community’s behalf.

Lighten up on Lightner. Look at her as the real community activist/leader she is rather than a politician with sound bytes but no bite in solving community issues. Give her a pass on this one.
