EDITORIAL >>Regime change in Sherwood?
Hillman’s plan still has a chance of succeeding, but it means having a number of the Harmonites slacking off on their allegiance for the good of the city—and that’s a slim chance.
The better deal for Hillman would be to wait.
One alderman has already decided not to run and the other three all face challenges. Who wins will send a message to Hillman and Harmon.
If the challengers win, Hillman will get Maryland Avenue opened—the new blood will see to it, and the good-old-boy system will fade fast.
But if the status quo stays, then gridlock will only increase as the Harmonites keep the brakes on Hillman’s power.
This all makes for a long summer, but an exciting fall. So stand by, or stand still in traffic on Brockington Road until this issue is resolved.
