Recently some member of the Asheville City Council proposed changing the way we elect city council people.
Instead of how we have done it (non-partisan) they want to include parties in it (partisan).
If we were to change something I would be more in favor of districts than parties, at least that is my initial reaction.
Is there an advantage to this? Or does it just make more blind voters on party lines?
There is a movement against it, but it is being spearheaded, it seems by GOP/libertarian types. They are calling for a referendum, which seems reasonable to me.
Am I missing something?
