Null Space: to borrow a phrase.....: "to borrow a phrase....."
The candidates come and go. However, the city, county, and region is not as it was in the past.
Lots of people have moved out. That is more of a factor than who is on the ballot.
Some too have moved into the city as well.
Lots of debt has been built. That is not measured with these flash backs.
The city is on the brink. This can't be given a discount.
Lynn Swann was running for PA -- where the worst was a pay raise. And, Swann didn't even speak out against the pay raise much.
Roddey has done lots to prevent a R from running in the city as Roddey could not do it.
Roddey did a lot to piss off the city residents -- in both of his races and throughout his public career.
City residents don't give a woop about do-whop at QED. We were pissed at the loss of WQEX 16 and the debt that they created there -- despite having Mr. Rodgers to pimp. Then there is PAT -- and that leadership speaks for itself. Roddey supported the work of Sabre Systems too.
DeSantis has none of that first hand damage and baggage that Roddey has created for himself and our region.
