Jason Kelly: Neal Reisner 'singles out the only female person of color running for city council as not deserving our vote.'

I am responding to the article that Gladstone City Councilor Neal Reisner wrote about Gladstone candidates deserving our vote. My question to Neal is when will Gladstone residents deserve a diverse city council?

Why is Neal the arbiter of who deserves our vote? I find it interesting that Neal singles out the only female person of color running for City Council as not deserving our vote.

As representatives of the city, councilors should be encouraging all to get involved, not just who the council sees fit.
