Gonzales threatened the city workers with their jobs , aren't you glad the general public are as sharp as a spoon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
David April 06, 2011 at 02:41 PM
No one has ever presented actual evidence of this rumor, and if they had evidence they should've brought it to a court, since such action would be illegal. But nobody did, so I think it is a rumor. I know someone who works for the city and she said she's never been told by anyone who to vote for or that she should volunteer for someone's campaign. (and I'm not really a gonzalez supporter. I just hate false rumors)

Congratulations to all the winners! It was great (briefly) campaigning with you Cicely...look me up when you need a "communications writer". Best of luck to all.
Mia Wallace April 07, 2011 at 01:00 PM
Aren't most city workers in some sort of a union? I doubt people are threatening you...and besides when you go in the voting booth, only you and God knows your vote. Sad rumors :(
