We are just a few days from election day and I am curious to see what happens in this race. Will Morgan Lilliy's camp be able to take advantage of the controversy caused by Ness-Garcia's inability to pay her taxes? Even though she told a television reporter that she had learned her lesson and claimed that having run her own business gave her an advantage over her opponent, when it was that same business that got her in trouble with the IRS. Will Lilly's actions get her more votes or will it just cause voters not to vote for Ness-Garcia? She just might be helping another candidate reach a run-off with her. Will another candidate who has been off the radar benefit from the cat fighting and come out on top in this race? Tim Besco did have a lot of votes when he ran against caveman, I mean Congressman Reyes and even if only half of those people voted for him he could pull it off. Will Manny Hinojosa come from behind with his keeping City Council accountable platform have people vote for him and put him in that seat? Is Abe Peinado's conservative beliefs and small business experience what District 1 really wants? Or will Richard Jay Schecter or Theresa Anne Ware-Asbury be the long shot horse that surprises everyone and takes this race?
|Yes she has a MySpace page.|
"This notion that I should be indebted to her for supporting city domestic partnerships is ridiculous. My sexual orientation is a fraction of who I'm and what I stand for. My civic and community involvement is done out of passion and support for what I believe in and I never expect anything in return."
So lets lay all the cards on the table. Democrats, except for Jaime, don't want her, the gay community doesn't feel like they should vote for her just because she supported domestic partnerships, Republicans sure as heck won't vote for her. So who is left? I'm sorry but Ness-Garcia has a better chance of the IRS just erasing her tax debt than she does have a chance of winning this election.
But no matter who wins this race, we can assure that there will be a sleeper in the District 1 seat. Oh stop it! Like you don't know she falls asleep during City Council meetings.
