2 good options for choosing councilor


The only proposed scenario that does not seem reasonable is to return to office a councilor whom voters turned out of office in the last election, on the grounds that voters were somehow ill-informed, misled or just plain stupid in refusing to re-elect him. Pinto has every right to run for election again, and perhaps he would win his seat back. But it would be unseemly for his former colleagues to deliberately thwart the will of the voters, bypassing someone who beat him in the election, because they think voters made a mistake.
