To steal an analogy from Daryl Slusher's old newsletter, The Daryl Herald, councilmembers are like two-year olds -- if you don't keep an eye on them, they'll wander off where they should not, hide things from you, and be generally uncooperative. They also need to be babysat, and Slusher's new aide, Robin Cravey, appears to be good with kids. He came to city hall last summer for former councilmember Max Nofziger, and was largely responsible for Nofziger's late-bloom series of rapid-fire initiatives that focused on clear air and clean water. Now, he's started afresh with a brand new councilmember who could run anyone ragged with his darned questions and council-watching ways. Cravey is up to the task.
