She had the courage to go against the bullies, so I hope she wins by a landslide.
While the others on the city council spoke for the few, and the wealthy, she FOUGHT BACK for the majority, WE the people.
We must get rid of strong-arm bully leaders.

She was the lone voice who spoke for the people, just like another lady:
“Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

THIS is what our country is about.
Where did it all go so wrong, so people are less important than wealth?
We are self-destructing as a nation.

Betty Taylor is just too damn old to be effective. She couldn't be more out of touch with her constituants.
Thank God you live in Springfield and don't have a say in this election. So, your opinion means nothing. Take your meds, please?

You are too dumb to vote

1. You're so dumb you believe you have psychic powers but are never right.
I live in Eugene, which would be a better place without low-lifes like you.
2. Age has nothing to do with morality, integrity, and compassion. I'm writing this to people who know what big words like that mean.
Some day you'll be old but you'll still be too dumb to vote.
3. You are clueless about what most of her constituents want.
Most people in Eugene are silent, don't want to be bothered, and don't want to have to think about things or work to make their community better. They just don't care.
If you all are willing to let those who are too dumb to vote speak for you, then don't ever complain when they make things much worse, and they will because they always do.
Betty, a lot of good people sincerely appreciate you and your good work.
