Inconvenient Precedents II
The problem really is that whenever the games begin, you know it will take some time to resolve as it works its way through the courts. And it will start eventually. I think any taxpayer has standing to sue to stop an election. Probably any registered voter has standing to try and force an election. That's not to say a judge would agree, but anyone can bring the case.
by the way, has the city found judge to rule on this whole situation yet? Is anyone asking about it? While I agree that events are still pretty recent, remember there is not much time to figure this out. Forget just campaigning, for there to be a May election, it must be set 60 days prior just for the election machinery to make that happen. So any legal wranglings might need to be settled by March you would think. What is that 5-6 months at most, in practicality it must be a lot less.
