Mr. Rilling’s reaching out to our diversified community is certainly commendable and appreciated. One wonders whether he was aware that one of the listed sponsors, Ms. Rivas, a current BOE member, did not support the appointment of Norwalk’s first Hispanic Superintendent, Dr. Rivera. That well publicized lack of support disappointed many outside the diversified community. As does the reasons offerred for non-support.

What is this guy trying to do? Appeal to the Hispanic voter? We all know that the Latino vote is with Mangiacopra. …

It seems he is begging for anyone that would be stupid enough to vote for him. He’s desperate as he knows he has zero chance on Sept 10
