Thank you for the story on Frank Coconate and the city of Chicago's employees ["The Man Who Would Be Kingmaker," August 5]. I moved here in October from California after growing up in Hawaii and can sympathize with the feeling of helplessness that a lot of people here feel when confronted with corruption in politics. I do hope that the city workers do not lose sight of the power that they wield. They have the unique experience of seeing that not only does "every vote count" but more so that a group of people working together can affect the election. I hope that they see that they can influence the way that their communities vote and how cool it would be if they were actually doing it because it was a candidate that they actually cared about. I hope to hear who these hardworking people are supporting in the next elections.
