I deleted the listing for the September Free Exchange at Jim's request. I think he was feeling disappointed at the low attendance during the summer and wants to wait until October. I showed up to the August social, and turned out to be the only guest (which was okay, we still had a good chat).
Nice job on the letter regarding Chinese names on the ballot, by the way – I'd forgotten some of that history.
Incidentally, I called the Elections Department to complain about the red and blue footprints leading to the City Hall polling stations, and after explaining the situation, was referred to director John Arntz. I left him a voicemail as well as telling the staffer (who sounded like she thought I had a valid point) that I wanted a callback from him, but still haven't heard back. In all the times I've tried to contact him over the past years, in fact, he has never once returned a call or an email! Gets an "F" for public relations in my book. Anyway, I also requested a feedback form from them, which they mailed me and I will fill out and submit.
