going negative

I liked that Rebekah Gewirtz was willing to draw a distinction between herself and Jack Connolly, and having followed the Assembly Square politics I agreed that there was an actual distinction there. Criticizing Denise Provost for having voted against big box development and the gang ordinance is crazy, because in the first case she ran an extensive cost-benefit analysis first and concluded that we'd spend more on traffic improvements than we got back in taxes, and in the second case the ordinance was plainly unconstitutional and would result only in the city spending money in court trying to defend it. Sorry, Elizabeth: I was wondering slightly if I really had the right candidate, but now I know.
