Anonymous source: Progress story on Nikuyah Walker called a ‘hit piece’
C-VILLE Weekly Monday, November 06, 2017 at 3:46 p.m.
Three days before the November 7 election, the Daily Progress ran a story on independent candidate Nikuyah Walker with the headline, “Emails show Walker’s aggressive approach.”
Her supporters have gone ballistic on social media over the story.
The article describes dozens of emails Walker has sent city officials as indicative of her style of communication: “particularly outspoken,” “often confrontational” and in the online headline, “unabashedly aggressive.”
Reporter Chris Suarez says in the story a source in City Hall who wishes to remain anonymous “called attention to her emails, voicing concerns about her ability to work collaboratively with city officials.”
