To quote my polling official, “It should go real fast. You only got two people to vote for: The Hispanic guy or Emanuel. Just take a second.”
This could have been really easy to blow off – the baby, I’m running late, I need to get to work, etc – but I was really motivated to vote against Toni Berrios, who has been filling our mailbox daily with expensive fliers and papers supporting her obviously well-funded smear campaign against Will Guzzardi. Seriously. Some days we’d get up to three different oversized glossy mailers saying Guzzardi supports sexual predators and all kinds of crap. Also, Guzzardi seems like a breath of fresh air. And, it gave me a good excuse to get a great cup of coffee at Gaslight.
Kidding about the last one. Sort of..
