Who will lead the Non-Partisan Association out of its current wilderness? Here’s the list of people who want to. They’ll have quite a job ahead of them, after the second self-destruct in six years.
The question for many is what message they can find to bring back the people who either switched to Vision or sat on their hands instead of voting in the last election. We’ll likely see a return of the debate the NPA had the last time about whether it should start acting more like a traditional political party. The old-timers have always been reluctant to do this, since the NPA’s claim has always been that it just picks good people to serve the city and doesn’t get into politics.
