Radio Show host and Mayoral Candidate Kevin James had an article in the City Journal recently that led me to believe that he just might be a genius.
James argues that this would eliminate some of the corruption by dropping Council Members salaries and perks...and making the position less attractive to career politicians.
I think it is a brilliant idea... but unlikely to ever happen.
The corruption is too deep, and the temptation for ultra-liberals to micromanage the lives of others... well, that attraction never goes away for them.
This outside-the-box thinking by James impresses me.
I'm not on his bandwagon... but the other candidates right now are repulsive.
The Hamburglar? Austin Beutner? Wendy Greuel?
The City will need a hero in 2013.
I'm still looking for a solid candidate to support.
