Lake Worth Tot Endorses Javier del Sol for Official Storyteller
Looking forward to two years of scintillating stories.
It probably comes as no surprise that Lake Worth residents under age 12 overwhelmingly favor Javier del Sol in today's mayoral race. When asked why she was supporting del Sol this morning, the urchin pictured above hesitated, rubbed her toe into the ground, and answered, "I don't know."
But we think we can confidently answer for her. Del Sol is every infant's dream of a city official: He's kind of funny-looking, with that long braid down his back interwoven with pink yarn poofies; he rides a bike everywhere; he wears interesting and colorful clothes; and he can spin a tale like nobody's business, keeping babes enthralled with Aesop's fables and multiculti creation myths from around the world, told bilingually.
Heard the one about the tortoise and the hare? The guy on the bike has been spotted coasting ahead of drivers snarled in traffic.
