"MARY RAKESTRAW: ASK UNPOPULAR QUESTIONS
Ever since her irst campaign for city council in 2007,
Rakestraw has emphasized transparency.
“I ask questions that may not be popular,” she said.
“I may ask the questions that you might not like but you ultimately want to hear the answer to.”
She has also made a point of saying that she always returns constituents’ phone calls.
All well and good, but most of the time I can’t get her to return my phone calls.
I hope she’ll apply her commitment to transparency in municipal government
to her own agendas and motives."
