Speaker Candidate Fidler Responds

What's Fair is Fair

We present you CM Fidler's response to our latest posting about tomorrow night's debate.

Just a note from the missing Lew Fidler. Unfortunately, when originally invited to the Housing debate, I indicated a scheduling conflict. Unlike Citizens Union, which vetted the date well in advance, Housing did not. I did not cancel, and had my staff ask initially if the date could be otherwise. We expressed our regrets, offered our support for the general principles raised in the cover, noted that we have not taken oodles of cash from the real estate industry---or anyone else for that matter---and offered to attend other Speaker debates in the future. After all, I enjoyed the heck out of the first one----didn't you? Councilman Lew Fidler
