The Charter Commission last night voted 5-4* to add residency requirements to the four councilor-at-large seats. Candidates for the four seats must live in a designated district (probably a combination of two wards) but will be elected by the whole city.

This is a game changer for me. I’m delighted to hear the news. 

*Votes to change to districts:
Barash, Frantz, Krintzman, Lipsitt and Steele
Votes to remain at-large:
Haywood, Kidwell, Larner and Manning
