Statesman city reporter Ben Wear covered every campaign forum for every single race, but his hard work often ended up buried in the back of the Statesman's Metro-State section or never appeared at all. Although he was the only Statesman reporter assigned to all four council races, Wear managed to pull off some excellent reporting on the election season, if you could find it. His coverage after the Place 6 run-off was particularly enlightening. Attention Statesman: Someone needs a raise.
