8TH DISTRICT E-NEWS #27/2012

 

"The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
And, go Downtown(News)"- Petula Clark 1964

 

It is with great honor that I accept the Downtown News award for "Best Surprise Comedian" 2012. When my office decided to cover the various ins and outs of the redistricting process and relay the information to the public, we didn't believe writing about boundary lines and population would be very funny. But, the missteps by, quite possibly, the most self-serving elected body ever provided plenty of fodder; a comedy of errors, if you will.

 

A special thanks goes out to the folks who put our e-blast together: my Chief of Staff, Bernard Parks, Jr.(It's about time he did something right), and my Press Deputy, Brittney Marin. I would be remiss if I did not thank the mayor, the city council and Senator Curren Price for being such willing and stationary targets.
