    I am not surprised that Gladden endorsed Crow but I’m surprised that Chandler joined in the "mayor’s crusade" to elect a total "yes council". Those of us in Gladden’s ward have been regretting that he did not have an opponent this time. The big issue he cared about was the sign ordinance and when he should have recused himself, he did not. Regarding Henley, he has a lot of supporters because he is not afraid to ask questions. He goes around talking to residents and businesses about issues which is probably more than either Gladden or Chandler has done. You both should be ashamed at your joining in on the mayor’s crusade to get her dream council. The drama and lies came when she became mayor and you both are guilty of covering her butt all the time.
