Re: “Sheppard kicks off mayor's race

Sucgolfbal--When did Rachel Barnhart call someone names?

I'm not sure what policy plans Mr. Sheppard has put forward. He's suggested some pretty hostile policies in the past, such as stop and frisk.

Re: “Sheppard, former police chief, considers mayor run

Barnhart currently works to help raise money for the poor. She could have easily gone back to journalism. She doesn't need a job. She's also been a Democrat since she was 18.

So what does she do that makes you think she's a Republican? Demanding more of our local leadership? Creating programs to help the poor instead of tax incentives for people buying $300,000 condos? Serving the poor?

Re: “Sheppard, former police chief, considers mayor run

"The two have quarreled publicly in the past and neither is known for backing down or for playing nice just to make people comfortable." Why are women always expected to "play nice"? Sheppard gets a pass on playing nice just because he left after Warren won the mayoral election?

And when was Barnhart actually mean to Warren? Barnhart reported what the mayor did, which was newsworthy, then even met with Warren.

"Some Democrats say..." Oh yeah? Care to say who? If "some Democrats" want to provide their take on the election, let them come out and say so. There's no need to enable them to provide conspiracy theories without consequence. And why would someone stall a career, resist attempts to buy her out, and raise $150,000+ just so someone else has a chance to win? That's lunacy.

Re: “Barnhart responds to CITY's Assembly endorsement

She'd never go after Duffy? Well, I found this...…

As for attention seeking, running a campaign is very difficult. In a competitive race, you *must* respond to things even if it seems they're ridiculous.

As for nuance, look at the Republicans who support her on social media. I've *never* seen any candidate who was able to convince people from both sides to her point as well as she has. At times, it can be maddening. But that's partially what's led to her strong following.

Re: “The next act for the RPO

"Finally, there's been enough dissident talk about withdrawing financial support – even about urging governments to cut off funds. That will cripple the orchestra."

Let me pose a question. Should the input of over a thousand patrons and members be ignored, in addition to multiple musicians who feel Remmereit acted appropriately? We members were denied a voice and a vote. We are obviously upset with the outcome of this situation. This puts us in a quandary: we can support an organization whose leadership blatantly scorns us, or we can harm the musicians. Thus, I would love your input, Ms Towler, as to how to satisfactorily resolve this problem. As far as I can tell, the only other way to resolve these conflicting goals is going to court.
