I just want to say, shame on the City Council and shame on the Mayor for forcing a flawed, gerrymandered incumbent-preserving ward remap on the citizens of this city. I am well aware of the representation requirements that dictate this process, but some of these wards look REDICULOUS. The process was conducted behind several closed doors with no significant public input. I hope the residents of this city remember this embarrassment 3 years from now and vote the 41 conspirators who approved this map out of office. I renew my call for reducing the number of wards and aldermen and create wards that are more contiguous and respectful of the established neighborhoods in this city.
