Just Keeping It Real

As you know, one of the main goals of this blog is to keep it real. The Keeping of Realness is an important value to both of us. To that end, we think it’s important that we be honest about any bias we might have. So we feel you should know that my friend and I are leaning toward supporting Cindy Chavez at this point. We are just two college students who have lived in San Jose for our entire lives. After attending some events and reading up on the issues, we simply like Cindy more. That being said, we will continue to try to remain objective with our articles. We started this site to educate young voters about the election and about the candidates, and we do not let our own feelings interfere with this goal. We have tried to establish a forum for open discussion in which voters from both sides of the fence can debate the issues. We will never delete a comment no matter how controversial or disagreeable it may be. The only thing we would do is delete an ethnic slur and footnote that a deletion has been made at the bottom of the comment. So please, continue to contribute to this important debate for the future of San Jose! Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.

On the grand prix...If the businesses didnt do as well as expected, point the finger at the Chamber. Maybe they should have spent their dollars on promoting the race instead of hitting Cindy.

Well, guys, I hope it's okay if you get a lurker/poster from outside the area (Roseville) who grew up in SanJo, doing high school and college for a total of 30 years in the "hundred villages in search of a city."

I still keep up with the valley as I go to SJSU events and will probably be joining the Spartan Foundation pretty soon.

Good luck coming up to this election, cuz I think it's gonna get ugly.

Cheers!
