An­other male for the men

Tampa Bay Times - - Opinion -

Watch­ing Thurs­day evening’s Clear­wa­ter City Coun­cil meet­ing I was so im­pressed by our mayor’s sin­cere plea for ap­point­ing a well-qual­i­fied woman to the city’s va­cant coun­cil seat. Mayor Ge­orge Cretekos made a very com­pelling ar­gu­ment, cit­ing the need for di­ver­sity and in­clu­sion and the im­pact on Clear­wa­ter’s cit­i­zens and young peo­ple. As for the other coun­cil mem­bers who in­sisted on ap­point­ing a man all the while say­ing they “care,” it’s clear that they care about some­thing, but it is not di­ver­sity. Geri Do­herty, Clear­wa­ter
