Re: “City Council District 7

This just the type of divisive attitude that held our community back for many years. Dealing with the dynamics of a large community with varying needs takes skill and knowledge. While the writer is correct in saying that Central Lawrenceville is the most healthy part of the community, I would have to add that Lower Lawrenceville which includes Doughboy Square is coming along nicely as well. While cahllenges remain in Upper Lawrenceville that part of the community is showing signs of turning in the right direction also. This is due mainly to a concerted effort between the Councilman and the commuity groups to eradicate delapidated alleyway housing that has served to enable pockets of poverty to exist and provide places for those to sell illegal drugs and conduct illegal activity. Balancing the diverse needs of an emerging community requires that all issues in all parts of the community are being addressed. And while the needs vary and the solutions differ, it all must be done in a context to better the entire community. The many people that are involved in community clean-ups, planning, public safety block watches,marketing,tree tendering, gardnering, and graffiti removal, understand this. Our community works together to accompish goals, I can only assume the writer is part of the old regime when different wards in Lawrenceville use to compete for Mayor Murphys morsels thus pitting neighbor against neighbor. Thankfully those days are well in the past and Bodack played a significant role in making that happen. Councilman Bodacks spending is on his website, and he did debate Dowd at the Union Project on February 28th.
