Progress Endorses Hamilton and Republicans

In yesterday’s editorial (“Fresh Voices, Energized City”), the Daily Progress endorsed three candidates for City Council: Kendra Hamilton, Kenneth Jackson, and Ann Reineke. The endorsement of Republicans is noteworthy, because of Democrats’ long dominance of Council. The Progress said of Jackson and Reineke that they are “remarkably well informed, considering they come from the city’s weaker political party.” Putting the best face on Jackson’s three separate attacks on people with knives during his adult life, they asked, rhetorhetorically, “What other candidate has seen the law enforcement system, the court system, the social services system from the perspective of somebody in trouble?” Because WVIR, C-Ville, The Hook, and WINA do not endorse candidates, the Progress’ endorsements tend to carry some weight.
