I thought about this when I read it, but Mayor Brown puts it most succinctly:
And the irony that this luncheon was held in Glenmore – an affluent, gated community – must have been obvious to everyone present.
â€œLots of poor kids are smart and need enrichment opportunities,â€ Ralston told the chamber’s annual Community Government Luncheon at Glenmore Country Club. Parents living in poverty â€œwant the best for their kids but they don’t have the resources and they don’t have the opportunities,â€ she said.
WINA and WCAV report as well. Hat tip to Waldo.
Might as well lead from the top.
