Now that the recount is complete, it’s time to thank City Councilor Greg Schwartz for his leadership, wisdom and eight years of service to our city. There’s little doubt that Schwartz, a moderate on the council, was the victim of our polarized political times (and in turn, bullet voting) and had the misfortune of facing a motivated, energetic, well-respected and smart challenger. The fact that he’s also a practicing physician and chair of Land Use, no doubt, cut into his time to campaign or engage with residents year round the way some of his non-working colleagues do.
Thanks Councilor Schwartz. Your contributions and corny jokes will be missed.
