Next up in today's Daily Post is their interview with Alex Kent who they describe as "a commercial real estate broker". We know from the candidate's debate post on the Voice that Alex doesn't believe he is a realtor, but the real gem of the interview is his strategy for dealing with "the union"
He said the city should really get to know its union members, and have members know the community better.
"Why aren't those union leaders participating in our fresh farmers markets?" Kent said.
I'm not sure where to start here. Perhaps the leaders of the nine unions in town already have all the fresh bell peppers and kale they need? I have to wonder what special talent Mr. Kent has for negotiating with unions? And given that union negotiations happen in closed session, how does Mr. Kent know how well the city staff and council members know or don't know the unions? I won't even bother to retype his naive comments about the Safeway project, but he would definitely benefit from read this set of posts.
