The District 2 race

I see by Facebook posts today that there was a reception for Teresa Sarnoff last night. I didn't write about it ahead of time because I didn't know about it. I am not picking and choosing which news to write, but if I don't know about it, I cannot write about it. I would like to write about all the candidates and they are welcome to send me news, events, whatever; whenever they like. I just don't want people to think I am picking and choosing which events to post here. I'm not. I am treating everyone fairly.

I am not taking sides in this election even though I know quite a few of the candidates personally. I have also been asked to donate to campaigns, but I am not doing that either, because I feel that it's either donate to all seven or eight candidates or be seen as supporting one over the other by people surmising who I donated to if I only donate to one, two or three; so I won't donate to anyone. I don't want to donate to anyone that I am against, and I don't want to be forced to donate to everyone.

I had been in favor of one person, but now I have changed my mind because I am no longer a fan of that person, so I would have regretted donating to that person if I had. At this point, I really don't know who I am in favor of but I do wish I had known about last night's networker  because I might have wished to attend and I want to report the upcoming events for the public. And I am sure many other people might like to attend the events to meet the candidates, but if they don't know about them, how can they attend - and donate money and support?

Teresa Sarnoff's commission bid for her husband's seat makes me sick to the stomach.

Anyone NOT involved in politics or even remotely interested would work: Let's say, a true Grovite, the Lemonade guy on Kennedy park for District 2!

Tom, I think you should take a stand. If you're willing to vocally support someone, do it. This isn't the Miami Herald (who often shares their picks), this is YOUR blog. I see this as "Tom Falco's Blog" not some impartial Coconut Grove community newspaper.

Don't worry about alienating your readers, they seem to complain about everything anyways, so you might as well do what makes YOU happy with YOUR blog.

I honestly don't know who I am for Brian. There are too many people running and I know quite a few of them personally. It will be easier to choose when it's narrowed down to a few.

I agree with your sentiments here, Tom, and would add one more caveat. Early absentee voting was a huge factor in the last District 2 race. Money, time and support are bad to give to someone who eventually disappoints, but casting a vote too early can't be undone.
