Now, I hope the publicity works in her favor and she gets a ton of empathy votes.

There are several different ways a newpaper could present this sort of information if they thought it necessary. Your newspaper (I don't live in Janesville) chose the meanest, lowest class, cold-hearted way. What a shame.

But how relevant is this information regarding her ability to perform on the city council? Very, very little. This episode about reporting public information once again rings an inconsistent bell with THIS newspaper when they deliberately withheld relevant courtroom testimony about a county candidate’s duty to perform, from their headlines a little more than a year ago. If their excuse now is to “inform,” what was their excuse before?

For somebody (me) trying hard to stay out of forming an opinion about this particular city council election cycle, the Gazette sure has a strange way of creating interest for me.

The Gazette itself is the primary source of negativity in this community. Always has been.
