  • Edward McDonald may well be the most superbly prepared candidate for mayor of any major city anywhere in the country. He is a combination of people-person, policy wonk, intellectual, and passionate urban development planner. We would do well to elect him NOW, rather than going through more election chaos and the potential of candidates who love piecemeal giveaways: typical politicians devoid of true leadership.
