City Council Races Offer Change in Ferguson

ferg

Excellent. A healthy range of candidates for City Council elections in Ferguson. What Ferguson needs now is healthy participation by voters, after a turnout of 12% in the last elections.

The City Council is the funding agency for the Ferguson Police. Ferguson is itself a black majority township. If you want better policing in Ferguson, more racially sensitive policing, then the first step is to choose the right folks to be sitting on that Council, making policy for the police force.

This is citizen design of policing in action. If you want change, get off the streets, stop shooting people, and vote.
