There is no denying that the Realtor collective contributed to DePula's first campaign. In this case, you are accurately quoting the public record.
Your other comments have clearly been less pure in nature with a determined goal of influencing others in how they view Mr. DePula.
Earlier in this thread you were asked to provide concrete evidence of Mr. DePula's voting record in the very short time he was on the board. I think you will be hard pressed to find more than 1 or 2 votes that could loosely be described as conservative. You failed to provided this information.
On the other hand, we now have a city Affordable Housing Trust Fund largely due to Patrick's efforts.
He has been working on, and supporting, the mayor's IZ plan from the beginning.
He's on the steering committee of Progressive Dane. Oh yeah, I forgot that Progressive Dane was a Republican funded front for the development industry. And Micahel Jacob is really Terrence Wall. Think about it. Have you ever seen the two of them in the same place together?
Point is: The issue is not about who's a conservative and who's not. If anything, we have learned that at least some people can't be bought. If Patrick was in their pockets...would he have actively campaigned against them? Several times? Somehow, I doubt it.
"I criticized his public record. I didn't get personal like some have here, or try to destroy him, personally."
