  1. The funnest part oh his “service” was when he had a gaggle of followers create a phony D3 map just to keep him in office. Good Lord, the logic and language gymnastics and the fake outrage! One might reasonably conclude political hypocrisy was hard at work.

    • Zenger, no the funniest part is that the council majority chose politicians Shawn Nelson and Gregg Sebourn and other partisans to sit on the redistricting committee and chop up the map – but still couldn’t convince voters to vote for their candidate. Jesus Silva was one of the more thoughtful council members and also bothered to study the backup materials unlike some members who don’t even read it.
