The district 6 city representative has just announced that she is a candidate for the state legislature.
State law considers that to be an automatic resignation from city council.
Now we have to pay for yet another city election.
If she had resigned a few months ago we could have voted on her replacement next week without paying for a special election.
The city plans to call for this special election December 14, 2019.
That does not give potential candidates much time to run an effective campaign.
I wonder who the powers-that-be have chosen.
This is another example of flagrant disregard of the voters.
We deserve better
