Dear editor:

Ben Joravsky's profile of Miriam Santos [July 14] concludes with her leaving a Humboldt Park school after making a commencement speech. Joravsky states that while Santos is "in the limo; windows up, AC blasting, heading for a private lunch downtown with bankers," the children have to walk home to their tenements. Joravsky makes a good point. What business does a city treasurer have in meeting with bankers, especially when there are poor people in the city? From now on, I'm voting for the candidate who walks from appointment to appointment.
