Ravenstahl re-elected City Council president

Way to go Luke! He is a good choice for the role of City Council President.
Ravenstahl re-elected City Council president: "'The Democrats are basically the backbone of this city,' said Ms. Payne. In addition to being a Democratic committee member, she previously served as an aide to former Councilman Sala Udin, who she beat in the May Democratic primary.

'We will be able to begin bringing people, businesses and jobs back to our neighborhoods,' she said."

Newest Councilwomen, Tonya Payne, said that Democrats are the backbone of the city. She is right.

Sadly, the logic behind the rest of the statement is lacking.

To be well, a body needs more than a backbone. To be a fit city, we need a backbone and limbs, head, and two eyes for better perspectives.

Because we have an all Democrat City Council -- I see no insurance that they'll be able to begin to bring back people, business and jobs back to the city. We do want to bring more life to the city on many fronts. And, the way to do that is to have many fronts on city council -- beyond the one party.
