While I expect everyone knows this, but just in case, the City Council voted to eliminate the primary.
Here is an extract of some of the comments, provided by Mr Dick Howe.
There is a scheduled sub-committee meeting this coming Tuesday, at 1730, to discuss a charter change to modify our primary election requirement.
This issue is not yet settled.
My own opinion is that in a Democracy process is important and this ad hoc suspension of the rules to save $40,000 (the Mayor's guess) doesn't reach the bar. We should be encouraging people to vote, not looking for ways to eliminate opportunities to vote.
