The Chron has made its choice among the candidates in the open seat District B race.
In a crowded field vying to replace term-limited incumbent Jarvis Johnson, the Chronicle believes retired Postal Service supervisor and community activist Kathy Ballard-Blueford Daniels is the best choice to represent the district at City Hall.
Daniels grew up in a family of nine children in Fifth Ward and graduated from Phillis Wheatley High School. She initially trained as a nurse and accountant/bookkeeper before a 27-year career with the Post Office.
She has been an active, altruistic force for neighborhood improvement in the area. She is a member of the NAACP, a participant in Fifth Ward Super Neighborhood #55 and a congregant of Greater True Vine Baptist Church.
They endorsed in A on Tuesday, and B today. I wonder if they’re planning to do them all alphabetically, or if this was just a coincidence. We’ll know soon enough. My interview with Kathy Daniels – for the record, I asked her before the interview how she wanted me to introduce her, and she said she was dropping the “Ballard” from her name, so at her request I went with “Kathy Blueford Daniels” – is here.
