No Love For Bober

This is an email that just came across my transom from Nadine McCrea, president of the Washington Park Homeowners Association, to Hollywood Commissioner Peter Bober demanding that he remove her photo from his campaign website (the offending photo, I presume, is the Xmas shot).

I'd like to say that there is some deeper meaning here, but, nah, it just looks like petty politics at play.

Nice contact list though.

Dear Commissioner Peter Bober,

Several people have reported, and I saw a picture of Annie Seymour, Karen Scott and myself with you on your website. I believe that this picture was taken in December 1999 during our Community Christmas event in front of our home. When Annie passed you had an opportunity to donate to the Annie Seymour's Scholarship fund. Mayor Mara Giulianti and Commissioner Beam Furr as well several friends surrounding the City did. I do not remember your donation. For two years we have not held this event on this block. That goes to show you just how out of touch you are with our community programs and events.

The first time you ran, you asked me to support you. The second time, I believe that you needed more years. But with in those years, I found out that you are more about self and rising to the top than about our community initiatives. Think about it! So, therefore as I have told you repeatly and recently, I do not support you.

Let this email serve as My REQUEST for you to remove my picture from your website IMMEDIATELY! Oh, by the way, someone else will be calling or emailing you the same request.

Nadine McCrea
