City commission primaries revamped

August 25, 2010

Commissioners unanimously agreed to change the law regarding City Commission elections.

Beginning with the elections in 2011, City Commission elections will require a primary if seven or more candidates file for seats on the City Commission.

That was the standard used for many years, but during the last elections a state law change increased the number of candidates needed for a primary to 10. Commissioners have the ability to exempt the city from the state law.

Commissioners said they agreed to do so because they believe the lack of a primary in 2009 decreased voter participation.

Where have you been sleeping, Cheese, these clueless, gutless, minions of core-less have been doing this kind of crap for years now, look at all the neat roundabout whirly-gig "traffic hazards" they have been building all over the community. Why do you expect any other sort of action from these characters?

Where does the money for this additional expenditure come from? Why are these buffoons dreaming up ways of wasting money during very lean times? Further proof that the elected officials are out of touch with reality and should be removed from office.
