Mayor Steve Bach’s brief Monday announcement that he won’t seek re-election came as no surprise. Nearly a year ago, Bach met with John Suthers at the latter’s request.

The time has come to ask some difficult and uncomfortable questions about Keith King. The City Council meeting of Tuesday, July 22, was a particularly sad and dispiriting spectacle, magnifying questions about King’s leadership as Council president.
