Karen Dolan’s positions on single trash hauler and Martin Tower are completely correct, undiluted by muddled economic thinking. To the extent that everyone else copies her positions, they’re worth supporting. The next most likely candidate to support a single trash hauler is Adam “Soft No” Waldron, who did not seem to be familiar with the publicly available information. He said it would cost some people less and some people more, as if those numbers are evenly balanced. That’s wrong, the vast majority of people will pay less than they do now. Hopefully he will apply his small business acumen to this decision, and make the most economical choice for the most people once he familiarizes himself with the details.
Hillary Kwiatek storified the whole thing, and here’s the best line on single hauler. This is the view of leadership every politician should aspire to:
Councilwoman Dolan’s view is also closest to my own on Martin Tower:
* Chris’s 4th place position is tentative, conditional upon him pushing this model mobile vendor ordinance
** Hillary Kwiatek has persuaded me that Dave Sanders belongs on the bottom.
