To the editor:
So It seems that Councilman Chris Chulakes-Leetz is causing a bit of chaos.
With an argument against a fellow councilman on the dais to an attack of a former councilwoman's dead husband, the media is not in his favor.
I personally think the Councilman could have handled it differently, and that he should apologize and do some damage control. It's disappointing that this is dominating the news, as the Councilman is one of the two most fiscally conservative on the dais.
Councilman Chulakes-Leetz seems to support the opinion of the majority of the public, voting against the UEP Expansion and the Public Service Tax, and with Mayor Sullivan, showing their commitment to low taxes and small government.
Ironically, these two seem to have the most chances of losing. Mayor Sullivan has a five-member opposition in his race, and Councilman Chulakes-Leetz's opposition, the young dark horse turned political powerhouse Richard Leon, is leading in popular opinion, and will likely ride the Councilman's comments to the General.
I find both candidates for District 4 to be very good candidates with good policies, and the City would be blessed to have either one as councilman. I want a competition, which is why the Councilman needs to come out and diffuse the situation with an apology, so we can return to the issues, and not to useless tabloid bickering.
