To the editor:
Some dear friends and beloved neighbors will vote for Allison Silberberg in the Democratic mayoral primary on June 12.
I will not.
Alexandria is poorly served by Silberberg’s Palin-Trump brand of populism. She knows better than the experts. And she – and she alone – listens to our citizens. Even her slogan, “The People’s Mayor,” is pure populist hooey.
I will vote for Justin Wilson, a competent, intelligent and diligent candidate, on June 12.
Whatever the outcome on June 12, it is not our mayor that makes Alexandria great – it is dear friends and beloved neighbors.
-Eileen Wallace, Alexandria
