Don't let the dogs in

In an article entitled "An Election? What Election? Oh, You Mean the Developers Dream Team!" George in Denver echoes other discussions of Denver's boring elections. But he offers a twist. Actually, two.

First, as the title indicates, George recognizes that in the absence of public interest, special interests will rule. And who are foremost among those special interests? Developers.

Second, George decides to do something about it. Rather than vote at all, he decides to cast his ballot for his dog.

Will that scare the special interests? I doubt it. I'd rather investigate the candidates, participate in the public process, and vote.

Don't leave city government to the dogs.
