For John, BLUF: Sure our local elections are stained with partisanship, but making them non-partisan is a good idea. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the web page of the Business Insider we have Republican Josh Barro writing about New York City's Primary Election on Tuesday.
Mr Barro's conclusion is that given how things go, with the Democrat Party candidates going left and Republican Party candidates going right, the City might be better off with non-partisan elections. It is not like being Mayor of New York City is a major stepping stone for higher office (thank God).
