I have attended a few city council meetings and planning commission meetings and I am convinced nonpartisan elected positions should be abolished.
A Republican and a Democrat think differently as we all know or we would all be of one party.
The last city council election I asked every person that knocked on my door what their politics was and they all said it doesn't matter as it is non-partisan. I said it mattered to me. But every person that ran were all of one party for our ward, so we had no choice as they were all Republicans. Every election should have candidates from all parties and the ballots should list their affiliation.
