Going to start with, I appreciate the interview. This was not the place I anticipated to see a Farkas interview and I think that's a good thing. His current efforts are admirable and the way that he's helping out is really cool. You can tell he's passionate about the causes.

"“The challenge is for some people, on the left, who like to demonize their opponents, maybe there is more to me than they initially thought,” he tells me."

This. This is why I get my back up with him. City politics shouldn't be left and right, it should be about growing a vibrant awesome place to live. And while some of those ideas fall in liberal and conservative spheres, that's fine. He leveraged the left vs right and continues to. When he stops doing that, I'll work harder on changing my mind on him.
