Drago also tried to torpedo City Council Member and badass renter Judy Nicastro. Drago was one of just three council members (joining brainiacs Jim Compton and Richard McIver) to vote against Nicastro's excellent renters' bill of rights. The ordinance included a tenants' right to organize. "I had problems with making landlords allow meetings," Drago told The Stranger.
Heck, Drago was a drag even before we had Licata or Nicastro to compare her with. A cheerleader for corporate welfare, Drago helped funnel nearly $100 million to downtown interests, in the form of city-backed loans, special grants, and direct spending in the mid-'90s. Drago also signed off on a slew of Sidran ordinances in the early '90s (the poster ban, no panhandling, no sidewalk sitting).
Don't give Drago another four years. Eight is enough.
