Letter From Milt Kostner

Coming from the Westwood Oaks integrated neighborhood, I pondered two questions. First, could District Council elections benefit the City? Second, could District elections damage the City? I could see benefits for support of District elected Council where a District gets a champion supporting their particular need. On the other hand, why would the other Districts support a lone need which doesn’t improve their District? For years I have lived under the downtown political mob, but the broad candidate range of this election promises a more balanced Council. If successful in broadening City reach, I’d stick to City wide, hoping for fruits that benefit the WHOLE City.
