Supports Lofton for Place 6

RECEIVED Thu., May 11, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I have always thought that all of Austin should be represented on the City Council. Right now, most people would say that we have a fairly good balance, though East Austin does seem to be continually slighted by the council. That's one of the reasons I am supporting DeWayne Lofton for City Council Place 6. DeWayne, the only native Austinite in the race, is the only candidate running for Place 6 who is from historic East Austin, and he won't forget where he comes from once he gets to City Hall. I am voting for DeWayne Lofton because he will represent all of Austin – not the central city establishment, not the business interests, not the West Austin elite – but all of Austin, and that's exactly how it should be.
