L Tecolote, I read the article you posted. Absolutely the local paper was all for the soon to be former mayor. The editor of the paper is to the left of Bernie Sanders. The pro-refugee people got endless good press and the anti-refugee crowd was demonized in all the usual ways. That the mayor lost over this issue in a liberal State like this says far more than the liberals want to admit. Living in a echo chamber of like-minded souls as they do, when they lose an election like this they don’t understand what happened.
