I think Norm Kent's vitriolic “Mayor Pete The Invisible” editorial was a bit misplaced and disrespectful to Mayor Pete. 

While he has run campaigns to get elected, running for the presidency is a different ballgame than running for a mayors office. Could it be that while he's a Gay married guy, the biggest number of really important voters are not in our community and considering he'd like our support, the gay vote at the moment may not be his top priority?

I think Norm's issue was less about the Mayor's failure to communicate and meet with the gay press but having been asked to pay to attend the fundraiser! 

Articles like Norm’s certainly will not endear Mayor Pete or any another gay candidate to the gay press and certainly not to SFGN!
