Handsomedan: I still stand by my earlier point that it's not really about what's been done, or even the moral ambiguity...it's the fact that as mayor, he has lost the public's trust.
Trust is an absolute requirement in an office as powerful as the mayor of our only Supercity.
Irrespective of my own political views, moral views and personal views, this guy simply can't go on without the truist of the people and those he works with.
In saying that...who would replace him? Less than 10% of the population actually voted...would a by-election bring more voters to the table? I'd say probably not.
Getting ahead of ourselves a bit, but I would think if there are some strong candidates then the voter turnout will be good too...
IMHO, The main reason most don't vote on council elections is that its too complicated and time consuming - too many votes to make for a whole lot of peoples who are largely unknown to most of the voters...
1 Vote for a Mayor is relatively easy.
