Response to article (October 12 - October 18, 2009) entitled "Mayor Coleman: Doing the right thing":
I picked up Insight News yesterday and was extremely surprised you would run a head line of "Mayor Coleman: Doing the right thing" just several weeks before the election, with nothing listed about Eva Ng, the challenger in the upcoming election.
First of all, the headline didn't reflect the story very well, and I couldn't immediate tell what it was about. It seemed like a underhanded endorsement of Mayor Coleman, which is in poor taste of the newspaper.

Response to guest commentary by Mel Reeves (October 12 - October 18, 2009) entitled "Don Samuels can't lead 5th Ward Black residents":
Your campaign article is pure fiction because your interpretation of Don Samuels's comments are completely out of context. Next time do your homework and deal with the truth.
There are challenges on the North Side and the last thing we need are candidates and commentaries that divide our community. Don promotes values built on mutual respect and responsibility. He expects the same from others. Don is truthful about his past and works 24/7 on building a bright future for the residents of the North Side. Change isn't always easy to accept but the results make "all" of us stronger. Don's first term made the North Side strong and his second term will make our North Side even stronger. The power of change is alive on the North Side.
Let’s get aboard Mr. Reeves and be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
