Best Display of Noblesse Oblige

Beverly Griffith

We endorsed Griffith, and we think she could have won a run-off with Betty Dunkerley, and Griffith probably thinks so too. To bail out of a race you will almost certainly lose -- as Ronney Reynolds did in 1997 -- is worthy enough. But to withdraw for no other reason than to spare the city a bitter and unfruitful campaign, even if you could prevail, shows a commitment to the quality of Austin public life all too uncommon among those in political life. Which is why we backed Bev in the first place.
