To the editor:
I am a resident of Alexandria. I am sending this email to pose an opinion at the upcoming City Council election. To get to the point, I am concerned over those city voters that are choosing to place signs for Republican candidates. Specifically, those that are Democrats leaning specifically toward Darryl Nirenberg.
In looking at his bio information, Nirenberg is a Republican running on a presumed centrist agenda. That may well be good, yet he is a Republican and, well, to be frank, if you are a Republican, you are by default a supporter of Trump. Those that are Democrats and are parking signs indicating that they are supporting Nirenberg should consider a pause and rethink if they are really saying that they are supporters of Trump.
Yes, I said it. If you are inclined to support any Republican at the local level, by default you are supporting the larger Trump agenda. Sorry, there is no way around that thought. Why? Simply put, the Republican Party en mass has decided to support the “Big Lie” and its agenda to subvert the Democratic principles on which this country was founded. And, since Jan. 6, Trump and his allies have been working to subvert those principles at all levels of government.
Alexandria will be no exception. So, let’s be absolutely clear: A vote for a Republican is a vote supporting the insurrection and subverting our Democratic principles. So, my fellow Democrats, are you sure you want to support such candidates to our City Council?
