Excellent. We have an alternative to the unacceptable Nash-King.


Omg let’s hope someone else runs, Bracey would run this city into the ground. With Bracey running Nash-king is sure to be re-elected and more than likely the reason bracey is running to insure Nash-king’s re-election.


Kinda hard to run something already into the ground into the ground.

I suggest IQ tests for anyone running for office. We know blacks routinely use 'low IQ" as an excuse for murder death penalty cases, we should ensure we make sure our elected officials don't suffer the same concerns.
