Re: “This week in the mayor's race: What will Warren do?

There is an old adage...if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

Maybe Ms Barnhart didn't want to wait til this year to try and serve. Maybe never having run a campaign was a factor. Maybe a lot of things... The point is few of us get it exactly right the first time. And too many wait 'til the time is right', which almost never happens. So, should we quit after our first failure or is it better if we use that to push us forward? Few millionaires didn't experience a challenge (including bankruptcy for many), on their way to their first million.

The statement by Friends of Lovely Warren is intended to inflict harm, rather than making a serious/valid point. One can only imagine why... Is Ms Warren concerned that she can't be elected this time on her record? Would trying to eliminate the competition in her party early on be advantageous? Help her get the party's nod? Something else? Who knows? I believe that when the opening salvo is an immediate attack, the attacker has something to hide or be concerned about...even when the attack is made using genteel words. When I first read it the other day, I didn't think much of it. It read like something that someone would say who would be considered a poor sport. Am still having a hard time taking it seriously, although someone certainly did.

All I can say is that when a candidate (any party or office) starts attacking their opponent, my eyes glaze over and I stop listening. A bully will attack, trying to beat another down. However, someone who is confident is able to raise themself up, without ever needing to resort to any sort of attack (personal or otherwise).

As a City of Rochester resident, I believe the more choices we have the better. If Rachel Barmhart wants to throw her hat in the ring, good for her and all of us. I don't know who will be the best Mayor, but I am willing to listen to everyone before deciding.
