So, because these leaders are voting or endorsing Kenney does not mean, I will be voting for Kenney or anyone else. Do we really want the same!
Do we want a Mayor for all "PEOPLE?" Someone please answer this question for me.
Kenney is former chief of staff for Vince Fumo = a problem.

The North Charleston officer had said that the man took his stun gun, but a video shows the officer firing eight times as the man, who was apparently unarmed, fled.

Oh thank you!!!  I was just talking to my friend Jihad about this...I told him, who am I or anyone else to tell My brothers and sisters to get over slavery of their ancestors....I would never tell Jewish people to get over the Holocaust, I would never tell my Native brothers and sisters to get over the genocide of what happened to them!!!  Bless you always my brother Ka!

I accompanied my daughter because she heard the same advertisement on the radio....First we sat for several hours waiting for a sales person. For a 2013 mini van with 41,000 miles and no alarm, cloth seating and the vehicle fired back, would you believe they wanted $23,000 dollars for the van. Shame on this dealership and your false advertisement. I must applauded my daughter, because her friend advised her Buddy Matt, to have her older brother George, run the car through Kelley Blue Book and the car was only valued between 18,000 - 16,000. I am so proud of my daughter....Mami did not raise no dummy!!!
