THE BY-ELECTION for mayor got more interesting Friday, but the outcome more predictable.
Dr. Cindy Ross-Friedman, one of the declared mayoralty candidates, sent around a media release late in the day.
This is true. And she intends to run what she regards as an atypical campaign. Unfortunately, it’s not as atypical as she might think.
According to her press release — or whatever — she is not a campaigner and doesn’t know how to play the game. “I don’t have ‘messages boxes’ or garish lawn signs or want to stand on the side of the road distracting drivers by waving like I am one of those balloon people.”
