Donnan tries to clear up my accusations that others tried to bully him out of running in 2012, but only adds more mud to the water

4 Sep

Dave Donnan sent me a note, but I don’t know if it answers  my question.  I had a conversation earlier this year  with a certain candidate who told me, very clearly, that he had tried to talk Donnan out of the 2012 council race because he believed Donnan would be a spoiler. Donnan refused to back out and this candidate expressed a lot of frustration if not anger over his loss, blaming Donnan for stealing votes from him.  When I told that story on this blog, the candidate came around denying it, and started using threatening language. Since I didn’t have the remarks on tape, I dropped it. But, I wondered  why Donnan never came around. Finally, today he sent me a note about that.

Juanita…..I should pay more attention to this blog as I only found out about it a little while ago. No one forced me out of city council race…as you may not know I was very sick and was in the hospital on and off for 7 months. I’ve had cancer twice (colon removed and testicle) and they thought I had it for 3rd time (prostate) but it turned out that I had fistula attatched to prostate and had to have ileostomy (bag for life…surgery in Jan)) and at UCSF had to have urethral stricture surgery (surgery in March) and am now just getting back to normal.

No, I never heard of Dave’s health problems before. Frankly, I don’t think Dave is talking about the 2012 race – he ran in that race, seemed healthy, never mentioned any health problems and seemed perfectly ready to assume the duties of city council.   If he’d been elected, we would have paid for the surgery he describes above, and he probably would have had to forfeit his council seat. 

I don’t usually edit people’s comments, but I didn’t post the rest of Dave’s message because he started campaigning. Forget that Dave, I’m not helping you run for anything.
