Rosemary Palmer for Congress -- Here's a piece by Anthony lighting into Dennis for not standing up for the people of his district, which encompasses a good part of Cuyahoga County. One thing we need to be mindful of is whether a candidate would be an improvement, or whether a candidate is just a change of scenery, or underwear. I don't see where Rosemary serves, or served, as an advocate for the people any more than Dennis does, or did lately. I'm thinking of wanting to see a well-defined track record of advocacy and service. In the recent abrogation of the right to vote in Cuyahoga County, Republican candidates and officeholders did hit the street on behalf of all of us, irrespective of party politics or party affiliations. Rosemary was conspicuously absent, for one who would purport to be a contender, and so was Barbara Ferris. We don't need any more lukewarm types who pick and choose what is most opportune for them.
It's easy to lob potshots at Dennis; he's vulnerable; he's odd.
It's hard to do the right thing, and to be truly useful. We've had enough posers; with Rosemary and Barbara, it's just a different pose.
I don't think they can prove me wrong. They both had an opportunity to make something happen this past month, something that would be a sea change, and they opted out.
