Letter: Consider Ward Format

To the Editor:

The City Council election affirmed that most Alexandria voters are far and away Democrats; not Republicans. To ensure the democratic process remains vibrant, the Democratic Party should allow future elections to be conducted by a ward vote. A ward vote format will at least allow neighbors to select neighbors to represent their interests on City Council. Wonder of wonders, it would also allow voters to select a representative to City Council because their views and vigor were the most compelling; not because they were pre-selected by the Democratic Party in its primary.
