REPORT: South Bend’s poor residents say Pete Buttigieg left them behind

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by CNBC:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – C.J. Neely, a black 16-year-old who has lived here all his life, thinks it’s pretty cool that Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of this small city of about 100,000 people, is running for president.

Neely hadn’t heard that Buttigieg announced his presidential bid, and told reporters he hasn’t seen the progress in South Bend.

The article goes on to state the following:

At a time when economic inequality and racial justice are at the nation’s political forefront, Buttigieg’s candidacy could be hamstrung by the impression that he has not tried hard enough to improve the conditions of South Bend’s poor and minority communities.

Even as his national polling numbers rise, the mayor faces criticism about his record on race, including for his handling of a police controversy that continues to be a subject of conversation in the city. His presidential campaign, however, cited South Bend polling data that shows the mayor has made inroads with minority communities. Chris Meagher, Buttigieg’s national press secretary, said in a statement that a poll conducted by Buttigieg’s “Pete for South Bend” campaign last month showed 86% “of folks, with a heavy African-American sample, said that the city was on the right track.”
