Aint broke, dont fix it
It would be a mistake to change the town of Morrisvilles elections process. Morrisville, like Cary, already has a good balance of district and at-large districts that ensures geographic diversity throughout the community.
Calls from some elected leaders to change this process to an all at-large model prior to this falls elections should be cause for concern.
Think about it: What exactly is broken with the current model anyway?
Its confusing, they say.
Well, how dumb do they think you are?
Lets be honest. When elected officials regardless of political stripes muck with the elections process it is for one reason and one reason only: to affect the results. And when former council members and candidates who lost under the current model are lobbying for these changes, that too should raise a red flag.
Dont believe the hype, Morrisville. Youre smarter than that.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.
