Speaking after the vote to Board of Education member Barbara Meyer-Mitchell, a Hosten supporter, Simms said, “They tried to put a black face over here to say, ‘Run against these folks.’ That’s absurd because they don’t like African Americans who don’t rubber-stamp what they do in this city.” Continue reading Simms wins District 140 caucus; Hosten promises to primary
