As a voter I would say we have too many politicians! The City Mayor advocated for the process to be fair and equal. Hats off to him! When one representative government decides their priorities are more important than others and want to change the outcome after the fact, there is no longer a process. It's like a baseball game, bottom of the 9th, bases loaded, two outs, the pitcher balks, runners advance and the game is over. The one team doesn't like the outcome and demands the balk ruling be thrown out of the rule book and the batter gets to return to home plate to try again. The city certainly has a compelling argument for their needs, but they don't get to choose, or dictate priorities for Saxman or the Borough. Cooperation is a two sided coin and it benefits all those whom we represent.
