Rosenblatt and Sanabria

I have enjoyed the interest in the subject of Rosenblatt and Sanbria.  (FYI, I have not indicated if I would vote for them or any other candidate.)

However, I would say the following:

Any candidate who accepts the support of groups who are at the heart of the city’s financial problems should not be supported by the community if you really want a change in city finances and in taxes.

As far as I know, Mr. Rosenblatt was not convicted of a crime, that seems clear to me.  The appearance of guilty disqualifies him for many people.  That is just fine and that is a personal choice.

    Certainly such salacious news will shock voters, but so will the use of aggressive and mean-spirited tactics against a candidate. Most shocking of all is the fact that the Gables Police Union is behind the negative campaign flyers being distributed widely in the Gables. It’s not clear who’s behind the aggressive push polling phone surveys, but clearly some are playing hard ball in a race that should be positive and civil.

    The good news: no matter what happens next month, two years from now, there will be no more Slesnick, Cabrera or Anderson (unless Cabrera runs for mayor) and we can start anew with fresh blood on the dais.

    Paying restitution sure gives me more than the mere “appearance” of guilty. And defaulting on your student loans, as he did, is personally insulting to me.

    I cite ED.gov.

    U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan today announced that the FY 2008 national cohort default rate is 7.0 percent, up from the FY 2007 rate of 6.7 percent. The default rates increased from 5.9 to 6 percent for public institutions, from 3.7 to 4 percent for private institutions, and from 11 to 11.6 percent for for-profit schools.

    I guess we are left without candidates from commissioner no. 4 at this rate.
