They are predicting about a 24% turnout for this primary. Shave off at least 8% for people who just don't vote for School Board (always happens - the vote count for City Council is always higher). So every vote counts.
I've been asked if I think people are angry enough to vote out the incumbents. I think the problem is not anger or frustration or confusion - it's exhaustion.
Can we believe the incumbents when they say they WILL provide more oversight (despite the fact that they had a lot of community input on many issues and ignored most of it in their votes only to have it come back and bite them. I note that Martin-Morris is running heavily on his no votes on the MLK, Jr. building sale and school closures.)
I think four years is enough. If I had seen anyone slowing changing course, maybe. (Sherry has but I haven't seen any pushback from her to staff, just some scolding.) That Peter had no answer to what he would do differently in second term and Steve and Harium said they wouldn't be changing anything, well, that leaves only Sherry who seems to have considered what has come before.
