    I kept meaning to listen to both Mayoral interviews to help me learn more about each candidate, and finally listened to Marilyn’s tonight! Great interview, and I was very impressed–I definitely like her a lot (but I withold judgment until I find out more on Merritt).

    Thanks for providing this public service, and great interview, Elliot!

    A career bureaucrat on a council of career bureaucrats. I often wonder what my fellow citizens are thinking. Both of the bureaucrats running for election should be defeated and replaced with (in Strickland’s case) a small successful business person who has much more community experience than she does and the fire fighter rather than the career government bureaucrat he is running against.
