With about 24 hours to go before the polls open, I’m going to take a pass on commenting on the candidates for Mayor and instead let two other people do it. One is a Melina Kennedy supporter and the other a Greg Ballard supporter, both are good friends.
I think the race is close and will be won or lost in the Black community as evidenced by Kennedy and Ballard’s joint appearances Sunday morning at Eastern Star Church’s west side campus, much to the chagrin of Pastor Jeffrey Johnson. Who by the way was very even-handed in his speaking about both candidates, however, I couldn’t help but think of Matthew 23:27-29 when Johnson said he was happy to see Ballard and have him at Eastern Star.
Here are the respective commentaries…
The polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
