Beane replied to opponent Jim Gerlt’s criticisms of some of his ordinances. He said that he was “surprised” that he never heard any of this criticism from Gerlt before he started his campaign.

“I’ve never heard from him, he’s never called, he’s never appeared at a budget meeting, he’s never appeared at a public hearing to approve the budget or the tax rate, so I guess I was surprised that all of a sudden thee is so much wrong at city hall, and there’s been so little opposition expressed through the 4 years I’ve been on the council.

Beane also talked about the decorum in city council, the Tim Cole memorial brought up at yesterday’s city council meeting, and councilman Victor Hernandez dissenting on the motion.

Early voting begins June 11th and ends June 19th. District 4 residents can vote at either the United Supermarkets location at 82nd and Boston, or the Market Street location at 98th and Quaker. Election day is June 23rd.
