Dear wwkvoter,

AKA Henry Krinkle,

Here are the facts:

1. I campaigned for over 700 days in a row to "Cut Taxes - Cut Spending" and spent $40,000+ of my own money on that campaign.

2. I received over 14,000 votes, more than any previous opponent of Mayor Avedisian. (about 13,000 more than people like you predicted.) Not the "blowout" you claimed.

3. Avedisian won. Avedisian also received 239 checks from Political Action Committees. I refused to accept any!

4. My message got through! In the next budget hearings (Spring 2017), Avedisian submitted 29 new tax-increasing amendments, just like he had done for 18 YEARS IN A ROW!

5. He was denied 29 times in a row! And it was by a unanimous vote each time!

6. EVERY member of the City Council gave me "some" credit for causing that. They had heard loud and clear from their constituents to "Cut Taxes - Cut Spending". I caused that rally cry.

7. Shortly after, Avedisian resigned. He didn't even finish his term.

8. And this is the one you're really going to like;

You can think that I had NOTHING to do with that. You can spout off that I had NOTHING to do with it. You can think it that the ONLY times in 18 years that Avedisian was turned town for tax increasing amendments, was in 2017 but my 700 day $40,000 campaign had NOTHING to do with it. You can even call me "delusional" for taking "some" credit for it.

I really don't give a damn. I know better. The 9 members of the City Council know better. And, most importantly, the 80,000 taxpayers that are paying a smaller tab today, ALSO KNOW BETTER. In fact, they tell me EVERY DAY!

So Henry, Happy St. Patricks to you.

Happy St. Patricks to the 80,000 taxpayers as well.
