I have never been so appalled by the selection of representation afforded voters in my little corner of The Beach. I can't talk about the New Bedford election because I don't want to skew the turnout numbers. I have "11%" in the turnout pool, and the weather is pretty crummy, so "woo-hoo." Anyway, the following speculation is way more interesting.
Luckily, this group is a benevolent (if dopey and socially-awkward) presence which has stood idly by while the machinations run. Run down.
