Dr. Florence for Koramangala Corporator!

The following is the flyer handed out by Dr. Florence, who is the JDS candidate for Ward 151 (Koramangala). She had preferred not to be interviewed by the Koramangala Smartvotes team. But she did come to the debate we organized last week.

I had initially thought of voting for the independent candidate Ms. Malathi. Becos she is better than the BJP and Congress candidates and I suspected Dr. Florence to be a dummy candidate put up by JDS. I did speak to Dr. Florence in person and she seems a very decent person. And her resume is very good. Now, I see her campaign gaining stream in Koramangala. So she is a serious candidate after all.

I'm now formally endorsing Dr. Florence for the Koramangala Ward 151 Corporator position!
