Carlina Rivera supports the SBS, but praises Brewer who opposes SBS and introduced BS business legislation??She also pretty much supported every application for a liquor license when she was on the CB 3 licensing committee. Yet she is concerned about residents being pushed out, doesn't she get the connection. Not a fan.

You don't have to be smart or consistent to be a politician. You just have to be wiling to take orders from the one party that runs the city. ONE PARTY RUE. NO DIVERSITY OF OPINION. NO CREATIVE SOLUTIONS.
