While traveling north on Kendall Drive and also on Sheridan, I saw more Larry A. Lee yard signs then Chas Kelley signs. I am not sure that means anything, other than maybe Larry Lee had a head start on walking.
I am not sure of the genesis of Pastor Lee’s run, though there are a few scant clues on a Larry Lee door hanger that has been provided to me. The door hanger says, on the front: “Better things are yet to come. Better things are still to be done in the city. join me in making San Bernardino a place people want to move to. Help me make San Bernardino a place people are proud to be from and not ashamed of. It’s time for a change”
The back says “Larry Lee understands: The seriousness of the problems we face. The stewardship of our city’s resources and affairs. The necessity of interdependence.
“Larry Lee will: Represent the entire 5th ward and city passionately. Work hard on issues of jobs and the economy. Maintain and help to find ways to improve the safety and protection of our residents. Not support any new taxes and will fight to lower them, when and wherever possible. Larry Lee is a community servant at will lead with courage, veracity and fortitude.”
This is a “get to know you” piece, and there are no explicit swipes at Council Member Kelley. If I were to guess the motives present, I would focus on “It’s time for a change” and Pastor Lee’s understanding of the ” necessity of interdependence” suggesting those times when Council Member Kelley has voted differently then the current Council majority.
In other non- news, I also saw the first Esther Jimenez for City Clerk yard sign.
