    Appreciate you clarifying for people in regards to the Ward 7 qualifying process.
    But, I am not “challenging” City Council. That has a very negative combatant connotation. I’m simply clarifying for them where I lived, bought and sold my house, and when.

    Thank you,

    Thank you for the additional information. No negative connotation was intended. To “challenge” is simply to “dispute,” which fits this circumstance because the City Recorder (not the City Council) has presented a preliminary determination to the City Council. The City Recorder’s memo states: “Based on this data, Walker would not be eligible to serve as a City Councilor ….” Presenting evidence to dispute that statement is not “combative.”
