Some people think the cost of the election is an issue. But others think the cost of an election is a small price to pay for a democratically elected government that is representative of its constituency.
The county board members that were considering two well qualified candidates against a controversial candidate that was not supported by the district constituency she would represent, should have considered the cost of the election they would trigger by ignoring the voice of the people.
