If Daisy Lynum did in fact try to reflect negative images on her opponents last week, she really should try harder to stay away from mirrors herself. The smear campaign against Regina Hill and Cynthia Harris not only fell flat, but actually backfired against Commissioner Lynum.

by Lawrence A. Robinson You may have heard about the smear campaign against Orlando City Council District 5 candidate Regina Hill over the last few days.

This is true in mainstream America and it is also true in the African American community.
