How the DDN minimizes Esrati at every opportunity

In the first article they described the 5 candidates this way:

Here are the candidates:

• Esrati, 48, a small business owner, blogger and community activist, last ran for the commission in 2009.

• Lovelace, 65, is seeking his sixth and what he says is his final term as commissioner. He has been a member since 1993.

Lovelace has pushed for racial equality for minorities, most recently challenging banks that were found to deny loans to more blacks than whites and tackling diversity issues in the police and fire departments.

• Joseph, 40 , is seeking his third term. He has been on the commission since January 2004. He has worked in the last year to strengthen the city’s ties to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to foster job creation.

• Manovich, 54, is a local attorney and employed at Robbins & Myers Inc., an equipment supplier for energy, industrial, chemical and pharmaceutical companies.

He has served as board president of the non-profit East End Community Services, which provides housing, employment and re-entry services to area residents.

• Pace is a small-business owner and local entertainer. He was a supporter of Mayor Gary Leitzell during his victory over Mayor Rhine McLin in 2009.

Pace has attended nearly every Commission meeting since Leitzell took office.

• Larry Ealy filed to run for mayor in 2009, but his petitions were not accepted.
