The city council and the mayor's office are designed to be independent branches. They fulfill the function of checks and balances. When one branch tries to dominate, there is trouble. Rocky Anderson is trying to pack the council with his own minions. He has zeroed in against Eric Jergensen for questionable reasons.

Eric is a seasoned and fair councilman. He is truly progressive, considers all factions and seeks reconciliation. He has earned the support of liberal and respected Democrats as well as Republicans.

Rocky supports a very young novice with sparse experience. She owes allegiance to Rocky.

Vote for Eric Jergensen and maintain stability and sensibility in our city government.
