Harbir Bhatia is running for City Council in District 1 against Councilmember Kathy Watanabe.
Bhatia organized a press conference last week focused on racism and corruption.
Recently, Bhatia was suspended from Nextdoor for violating their policies on abusive language and tone. So was District 6 candidate Anthony Becker.
We haven’t seen the posts Bhatia made that got her suspended. But we made a public records act request we made about the City’s investigation of Bhatia potentially violating the lobbyist registration law. From that, we got text messages she sent to City Clerk Hosam Haggag.
The language that Bhatia used toward Haggag is abusive. We’re reprinting here so readers can see.
