Dear Editor, About your dismissal of Andrew Bucknall as a credible council candidate because he doesn't have enough money at this point [“Council Candidates Take Their Places,” News, Feb. 4]. OK, I'm his father and a touch touchy. But! Shouldn't the platforms, issues, and social activism be reported first? Then an informed electorate might have a basis for contributions that would level the financial playing field. But starting with wealth and connections sounds like Tom DeLayisms – a strange position for a populist paper like the Chronicle. What's up with you guys?
