**Go Dark Horses!**
I love the (absurdly maligned by the PD) process of keeping the application window secret. I love that we all get some level of surprise when the envelope is opened…
“And the applicants are…”
Surely we can all wait until the list is in. Politics in SR is so ugly lately, I think of this sealed process as a breath of fresh air. I’d be willing to bet that if there are applicants other than the usual slate, they will probably suggest this ugly rancor is exactly one of the reasons they didn’t “run” a campaign the more traditional way.
Can’t imagine anything more scary to the Democratic establishment (PD, Bosco, etc): An unknown on City Council? Oh My!
