Berry has decided to bed with fellow Republican Don Harris. As you recall Harris proposed a $20,000 study by a paid city employee to find the reason why APD has a shortage of officers or why they cannot recruit. Yes folk, he wants to pay PAID employees to do their job. The entire purpose of this charade was to mask all of Berry’s blunders. Now Harris has made a new proposal to save Berry in a run-off election.
On Monday night Harris proposed to change the City election to give Berry an unfair and undue advantage. According to Channel 4 News (READ IT HERE) Harris’s proposal in his legislation will change the voting period leading up to the run-off election from 20 days to just 7 days. This would clearly give an advantage to the incumbent candidate.
Our Eyes tell us the public, whom were in attendance, were outraged! Harris ended up eating crow and withdrew his proposal to give Berry an unfair and undue advantage over the other candidates. It makes us wonder why Harris would "sell his soul to the devil." It appears, Harris has been promised something in return for kiss the A-finger ring on King Berry's hand.
Mayoral candidate Paul Heh stated, “Why would he want to change it from 20 days to 7 days?” Heh also stated, “I smell politics all over this thing, I think it would absolutely benefit the mayor in some way or another.”
Candidate Dinelli stated, “It’s changing the rules in the middle of an election cycle” Dinelli continued and stated, “This is clearly an effort by the Republicans to have voter suppression and it will favor the incumbents. I think it is ill-advised and I would hope that the mayor would quickly denounce it.”
In response Berry’s office sent out an email. The statement in the email claimed Berry “Strongly supports early voting and will evaluate the bill on its merits once it is further through the legislative process.”
Berry’s office plays a smooth game starting off the email with “strongly support” and then ends it with the; we will do anything to win statement (will evaluate the bill on its merits). Game over Berry, even cheating Berry will still lose because of Berry’s bad leadership. Harris is working hard to ruin what little credibility he once had.
