GULLSHIT ALERT!!! What is going on? Why- I ask you- why, are only 2 of the 6 City Council Candidates spotlighted in our school newspaper? Flyer, we can't be nice to you until you give us more balanced material to work with. On p. 5 under Letters to the Editor, the astute Gull will notice that Terry Cohen and Tim Spies had the foresight to grace us with their own self aggrandizement without mentioning a single student issue...or student (unless you count Tim Spies' kid, which seems to be the only thing he has to offer us in the way of relevance). Terry Cohen doesn't really offer anything except cracking down on crime(which isn't a student issue, that's a Delmarva issue, and shouldn't really be optional) but does give a nice long laundry list of what she did last year, although strangely, she leaves out her biggest accomplishment. Students, do you know what Ms. Cohen spent most of last year doing? Writing (with the help of the Mayor, Ms. Campbell, and their team of lawyers) the amortization, three strikes, and crime free lease addendum that would get us kicked out of our houses for smoking a joint, having a party, or having trash thrown in our yard (for more details, see articles below). Thanks Ms. Cohen- it's nice to know you were thinking of us.
But lets get back to the main issue- where are the other 4 candidates? If The Flyer wants to be balanced it needs to invite all candidates to write in, and then if they choose not to, it needs to say "Candidate So and So chose not to participate in this publication of The Flyer." That way, they'll write in next time. As it is, you will just have to go to the websites of Muir Boda, Orville Dryden, Laura Mitchell, and Bruce Ford to get an accurate picture of who is running.
