LUPE drama is old-style ward politics, but our focus should be on issues facing the community

Philly Latino leaders (from left to right) Israel Colón, Miguel Concepción, Ángel Ortiz and  José Nieto, in an AL DÍA photo from 2011, when the Latino community stepped up efforts to counteract the gerrymandering of legislative districts that had separated Latino neighborhoods and disenfranchised Latino voters. Several of these leaders have been vocal about the damage being wrought by LUPE's shenanigans and politicking.

The drama about LUPE's withdrawal of its endorsement of mayoral candidate Nelson Diaz is not a surprise. Old-style ward politics is well and alive in our community as it is in other neighborhoods in this city. Money is unfortunately a driving force that too often shapes who gets endorsed during an open primary like this one.

Capital of latino affluence

Capital of latino affluence

Chicago- My first visit to Washington, D.C., occurred when I was 7. The town impressed several things upon my young brain: Compared to Chicago, the buildings were all squat and white, and traffic was horrendous. But it was where the president lived and therefore the world's center of power. 

     The family had traveled there to visit my dad's cousin Lupe, who turned out to be one of a wave of what a recent Washington Post article called the "educated elite" from Latin America who came to the nation's capital in the 1960s, '70s and '80s.
