LETTERS: Why Bauman lost my family’s votes

To the Editor:

New Brighton City Council member Gina Bauman said “I don’t think privilege has a color,” and that she did not grow up privileged or wealthy.

She implies that there is no such thing as white privilege, or that she has never had it. She evidently has not been paying attention to the world around her while living her life. She’s enjoyed white privilege so long she doesn’t even realize it.

Perhaps that is why she did not get the votes this November to stay on the council. I know her attitude cost her my family’s votes.
