We are in 100% agreement with the May 8 editorial “Give Gordon a chance.” It is undeniably wrong that Councilman David Gordon’s fellow council members should be allowed to treat the council office as a childish popularity game and continually vote to deny him the opportunity to represent those who twice voted him into office.
