Mayors Fighting Epidemic of Recall Fever
A video called “Recall Fever: Stop the Madness” was premiered last week at the National Press Club in Washington by the U.S. Conference of Mayors as part of a “public awareness initiative” to convince folks that recalling their mayor — which citizens are attempting with greater frequency around the nation — is “destructive” and “costly.”
Destructive? At worst, it’s creative destruction … or destructive creation. Costly? Latent here is the argument that democracy is too expensive and, thus, we’ll have to settle for the incumbent, no matter what.
