And another thing
Aside from Heather Fargo and Kevin Johnson, the only other person to have pulled papers for the mayoral race is one Richard Jones. The 72-year-old is running as a sort of regular-guy candidate who wants to fix stuff that just doesn’t look right to regular guys.
For one, says Jones, “I don’t like that ugly looking rail yard.” Really? Upfront’s kind of fond of the whole toxic-hobo-jungle motif out there.
Upfront can’t argue with Jones when he says, “I’m sick of this city turning into some sort of gangland.” But when he follows up with, “I’m sick of the way we’ve taken in all these Asians and Hispanics,” well, there’s still plenty of time to polish the old talking points.
