Why is Matt Mittan so hung up on the City Council selecting a replacement [and not choosing someone] who, after serving one term, was denied another term by a majority of voters [“Meet the New Boss … Same as the Old Boss,” Commentary, Nov. 19]?
And what’s wrong with knowing where your Council member falls on the “conservative/liberal spectrum in terms of fiscal and social policy”? That seems to be important in how they govern. After all, we’re not picking a radio personality or a used-car salesman here.
