We had a very crappy election day here in Marion County yesterday. It was a complete debacle with several hundred volunteers who didn’t show up. That, however, isn’t the cause of the problem. This cluster has been brewing for a long time. It has to do with antiquated processes, a growing city, and a lack of civic responsibility. In short, the system is broken. And no amount of apologizing and name calling is going to fix it.
Should Beth White resign? Uh, no. This isn’t an individual failure. It’s a failure of the entire system. Until the system is reformed, we’re going to have this same experience over and over again.
