Last year I was all about the local council elections. With the focus this year on the Presidential Election, Queen City Survey has not had much election news to pass along. I will say three things . . .
Downtown Resident’s Council email had some great links for some basic information. Check out their website link at the right.
2.) Issue 8 - Proportional Response
I have been trying to put down my thoughts on Proportional Response in some clear, concise way. I can’t. I’ve been working on a post for over a month. In short, I am not for it. I think looking at electing council via a ward system and with some at-large members has merit (as has been proposed and discussed) but I do not agree with Proportional Response. I do not, in the end, think it serves the greater good. I honestly think it benefits minor fringe candidates. I am voting no on Issue 8.
The plus side of the elections is that Bravo is airing one of my favorite shows, The West Wing.
