I wish Mayor Johnson and Council member Sandra Anderson Groat every happiness in whatever is next for them in their lives. I have personally appreciated Mayor Johnson's "chill" attitude, though I think that that's one factor that finally undid her. Too many rambling conversations without much apparent order. I actually LIKE watching channel 13. I hope the mayor elect can take a humble and cautious posture and not come in gunslinging.
I'm glad for change. I may have wanted just a little more but I'll take it. I just hope it ends up being a good change. We'll see.
There is one disturbing aspect to this election which Roch Smith captured on his past You Gotta Show Up...
It's not so much the low turn out that bothers me but the colors on the map.
I see a map of a city still much divided politically along socio-economic lines. Perhaps it is fair to say "along racial lines," but I am not sure if that's accurate. Maybe others can make that connection.
