So what's the plan now that Mirilli has said she won't run as a write-in? Do we just kiss John Matthews' ring and vote for the other MTI candidate, Mertz? Sarah Manski's name is still on the ballot, right? As Stu says upthread, if she gets the most votes, the school board appoints someone to the seat. Maybe they would appoint former Mayor Dave. Or Stu. I'd rather have either of those guys than Mertz. http://media.cityofmadison.com:8093/med ... f9a881c71d
For the record, MTI still has not made an endorsement regardless of John Matthews decision to support Manski.
Likely the will accept the will of the voters and appoint Mertz; Could you imagine Manski getting 45% Mertz 40% and Mirilli getting 15% and then appointing someone instead of the guy with nearly half the electorate's votes? You will have another conflict on your hands...
