The Power of Incumbency

Local election results again prove the power of incumbency and name recognition. I would point out, though, that getting 2/3 of the vote should not be viewed by the incumbent as a ratification of the Hawthorne TDD deal. The margin came against an unknown newcomer and the incumbent's name is on the radio and in the paper every day (from her business, not her political ads).

Even though it appears that the State Legislature's eminent domain "reform" movement will kowtow to the development interests with a watered-down bill, the issue of property rights is NOT going to go away.
