Lol? Obviously we don't know how Perata would have ruled but my fear was that he'd just be another corrupt do-nothing career politician like Dellums. At the very least you can say that Quan is out there and does stuff (and manages to **** everyone off pretty equally), but I imagine that after being lambasted by everyone for the stuff she does, she'll retreat into inaction like Dellums for fear of upsetting anyone by daring to try anything.

In the last election I decided it was time for change... someone that was not an insider.

I voted for Joe Tuman...

I don't know anyone that voted for Quan...

Even those that liked her on the council believed she would be over her head as mayor.

I know many that voted for Perata...

I would love for the founder of the American Indian Middle & High School to run for mayor.

His take-no-prisoners approach to governance is just what we need imo.
