Curious coverage on Feinsod victory

Dear Editor:

Your article declaring Mr. Feinsod the winner of the mayoralty race was very curious.

From past editions of your newspaper, we all know you supported Mr. Daniels. My curiosity is why the article on the man who won was all about Daniels and his post-election party.

There wasn’t one word about Mr. Feinsod or how he celebrated his upset win. Didn’t anyone from your staff interview the winner?
