I really, really hope Larry doesn't win re-election.
And these entries have given me more respect for my city councilperson, Valerie Abbot. Up til now I only liked her cuz she seemed to be the only one that occasionally stood up to Larry.

Shia,
I agree about Larry, but I will take it a step further. I hope he gets indicted and removed from office, and quickly.

Of course, he is not my mayor. I am not sure how Ed May, the mayor of Bessemer feels about gay issues. We are personal friends, and even though we have had major differences sometimes aired in public forums, we still get along.

But Larry Langford, I can not stand.
