Jim Graham Responds to City Paper Feature on Ted Loza

For those not on listervs, Councilmember Jim Graham posted a response to this week’s City Paper’s Loose Lips feature on Ted Loza on the georgia_avenue listserv this morning. His message is below:

Dear Friends,

 Far too many times we’ve seen news outlets pry into the personal lives of public servants. Rummaging through dirty laundry and printing “he said, she said” allegations is a sure-fire method for constructing a poor image of anyone’s character.

 At times, we all make mistakes and exercise poor judgment. When loved ones, friends or colleagues make mistakes I don’t turn my back to them. I do my best to help with support, healing and learning. As to the abortion that Ted and his friend chose to have done, I loaned Ted the money (via authorized use of my credit card) which he promptly paid back. As anyone can imagine, this was an extraordinarily  difficult time for them and the financial burden would have only compounded their challenges. I was in a position to help.  

 I have always supported a woman’s right to choice.

 Bests, CM Jim Graham
