Though Grimes has already been in office for 15 years, so it's not like he wouldn't opt to retire instead. And re "some kind of fad", well...he's an incumbent. And you know how hard it is to dislodge incumbents unless there's some really pressing motivation to do so out there.What I do hope is that the man is barred from running from future municipal elections, what he did was improper and makes me wonder if he didnt disclose expenses properly for other municipal elections as well. At this rate, barring him from running for future elections is probably the only way this man will ever get out of office since many constituents have some kind of fad with electing him.
In fact, under the circumstance I'd say Amber Morley did a good job in electorally pressing him out of left field. (Hey, it was narrower than Colle vs CCG)
