"We need leaders who can lead. Last night, Council chose not to lead. For the first major decision in a four-year term that will set the city's trajectory for the next 20 years, that is a very bad sign indeed."

At the risk of being accused of sounding like a broken record...something I definitely don't have a problem with...I'm going to ask the same question as I did elsewhere on this blog recently:

Given that, over the past 40 years more than 90% of incumbents get returned to office (ironically just the other day I was looking at the very notes that I'd compiled two years ago at library), and given that this process is now three and a half years away anyway, what's the plan to 'get leaders who can lead'?

There are two (well, actually four, but I'll leave City Staff and Developers out of the discussion this time through) players at the governance table. Residents and the people they choose to manage things, the people they pay to do this. You know, as in 'employees'.

So.

You've already decided that you need better leaders at City Hall. These are not going to happen by way of the next election. What's your other option?

I'll give you a hint: It's a much, much, much bigger version of those who are visitors here to RTD.

Now, if you don't agree that the change has to come from us (but in a form that many have a real problem trying to imagine), please tell me how you plan to change the game.
