Hello Minneapolis, I hadn't noticed the Minnesota Daily's series of articles maligning Paul Zerby until I read the recent postings here on the forum. To paint Council Member Zerby in such negative terms demonstrates a complete ignorance of the man's record. Mr. Hoff has indulged in new heights of journalistic irresponsibility and the Daily should review Mr. Zerby's record and issue a public apology. Are we talking about the same Paul Zerby who has, time and again, stepped up to the plate on homelessness and affordable housing, veteran's issues, police-community relations, civil rights, the living wage issue? To paint him out to be some sort of neo-fascistic neanderthal, a malevolent force in City Politics is reprehensible. Incidentally, Mr. Hoff, Mr. Zerby is retiring at the age of 74. After a long and distinguished record of public service I think he has that right...he certainly doesn't need your permission.
