Letter to the Editor: Populist Hooey

Some dear friends and beloved neighbors will vote for Allison Silberberg in the Democratic Mayoral Primary on June 12.

I will not.

Alexandria is poorly served by Silberberg’s brand of populism. She knows better than the “experts”, and she — and she alone! — listens to our citizens. Even her slogan, “The People’s Mayor,” is pure populist hooey.

I will vote for Justin Wilson, a competent, intelligent and diligent candidate, on June 12.

Whatever the outcome on June 12, it is not our mayor that makes Alexandria great — it is dear friends and beloved neighbors!
