That was my point... folks saying that it must take a former council member or very strong community leader to knock of Helps... nah. If she disillusions a lot of Victorians, it can be anyone with a semi-strong resume and the ability to talk a good game.
Certainly. Also, CoV is a pretty orange town, and while she's going a touch far with the homeless file, she's got 2.5 years to pivot to a more reasonable position.
