Of everyone I talked to, no one voted for him. I can’t understand why he won again. This is Carmen

Ughhhhh....That photo not only sickens me, but it also literally made my flesh crawl... But if you can't be bothered to vote Santa Fe, this is the grossly incompetent and reptilian representation you deserve.

Huh. I voted. A bunch of folks in Santa Fe voted. Amongst those who voted the mayor won a big majority. The council members who were elected mostly won with big majorities. It seems to me like Santa Fe has the government it wants.

The Council was tired of thinking and arguing, so the went for a Strong Mayor, who'd tell them what to do. Webber, a power freak, bought the job. They seem well matched; Alan loves to "run" Santa Fe, a nice little toy. The Council needs to be adults, and return to having a REAL City Manager, with a weak mayor. That scheme actually works pretty well, but it does (sigh) require the lazy, rubber stamp, Council to work harder. And it would be nice to have a REAL media to inform the public, but perhaps that's asking too much.
