Head Scratcher

As most of you already know, the aldermanic races are long over.

While my alderman retained her seat, 20th ward alderman Arenda Troutman was trounced by her opponent Willie B. Cochran. Personally speaking that should have come as no surprise to anyone.

Nonetheless I find it highly coincidental that ground has been broken for what I strongly suspect will be another new condo development on Dorchester.

If you’ve been keeping count, that’s three---count ‘em---three new developments on Dorchester between 63rd and Marquette

Interesting timing, just dumb luck or fate? You decide.

I now live down the street from the new alderman. Two days after the elections, a city crew was filling all the pot holes on our street. Sure, they are doing that around the whole city, but I noticed our block got serviced right away while all the other blocks are still waiting for some love. As you say, coincidence?
