And if I were to be honest in my heart I am not even entirely sure if I believe the 16 months remaining on this term will lead to a repeat -- for any candidate. Ward 8 is just now starting to grow both economically and politically. We are still getting to this "democracy thing" after years and years of the political landscape being determined by name and length of residency vs. merit.
While it may not be a new day it is definitely a new political landscape in Ward 8 and that may mean a change in leadership a few times before we decide who will ultimately guide the ship -- at least 16 months at a time anyway. ;)
