Poll: Should Mayor Gonzalez be Going to the Democratic National Convention?
The elected delegate told Sun-Times Media he would not be making an appearance at the big event, which begins Tuesday.
Heights Mayor and elected delegate David Gonzalez turned heads again, after a Friday Sun-Times story revealed he would not be attending the Democratic National Convention next week.
The convention, which kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 4, in Charlotte, NC, is a major election-year event that will feature appearances from political notables, music stars and a speech from President Barack Obama. Most registered Democrats would be thrilled to a attend such an event.
So why isn't Gonzalez going? He told Sun-Times reporter Casey Toner he was too busy with his mayoral duties and his accounting business.
What do you think of Gonzalez's decision to forego the convention? Are you happy to hear he considers his duties in the Heights more important? Are you skeptical of his reasons?
