Remember back in June when David Brewster of Crosscut wrote this article, An election likely to ratify strong councils? He wrote: "Lots of fireworks, but I suspect the current board will survive, sustaining the momentum it has created."
He has now been proven wrong in the primary election in which three of the four incumbents for the school board failed to win a majority of the votes in their primary. The fourth won only a slim majority in his district, his strongest base of support, and now has to run city-wide where the sentiment appears to be anti-incumbent.
I sure would like Mr. Brewster to follow up his prediction with another article in which he checks his accuracy and analyzes any bad guesses.
