Did you intentionally misrepresent what the article was saying or did you not understand what you read? Never did it say that just Hispanics got 6 votes. Everyone got 6 votes. There were 6 positions to be filled. The only thing that made this unique was that the voters could decide how many votes to give each choice up to 6, rather than just having to give one vote to 6 candidate.

They gave the minorities more votes to help them elect minority officials, why not do the same for Detroit.

Yes, I want Detroit to be the city that Brewmann believes it is now.


Actually, I think it would be great to have a huge city to go hang out in, one where you don't need to worry about your car getting jacked, or having your wallet removed at gunpoint.

I'm not sure how I feel about that, it seems wrong for a single person to be able to vote for one candidate six times, but on the other hand there are six of the same positions to fill. I really don't see how it changes the outcome very much, if a voter cas only cast one vote then the six candidates with the highest vote totals get the job.

Yeah but only 1000 of them are legal registered voters , so now they have the option of casting six votes for their candidate.

Affirmative Action, bitches.

From the article:

Quote:
The village held 12 forums — six each in English and Spanish — to let voters know about the new system and to practice voting. The bilingual ballot lists each candidate across the top row — some of them twice if they have two party lines — and then the same candidates are listed five more times. In all, there are 114 levers; voters can flip any six.
More coddling of non-English speaking Hispanics. Are they citizens? If they were born here, they would have be educated in our schools thereby, speak English. I wonder what the percentage of non-English speaking Hispanics are here legally?

I think each person should get one vote. If the Hispanic population wants to get more Hispanics into office, get off the couch and vote them in.

While I agree on the whole one person one vote deal, I don't see how giving each person 6 votes really makes a difference, so long as everyone gets 6 votes (which they do).

To me, it seems more like a publicity stunt than anything else.

Seems like that's happening just fine, with or without Hispanic representatives.
