Small 'd' Democracy Is a Work in Progress

RECEIVED Thu., Nov. 8, 2012

Dear Editor,
    For once, I agree with you, Michael [“Point Austin: Elections and Consequences,” News, Nov. 9]. Perhaps you also mean to say that small "d" democracy is a work in progress.
    What happens going forward is dependent on who organizes to use the new system, whether they're home builders, environmentalists, etc.
    10-1, together with the first independent citizens commission in the state of Texas, simply opens the door for more grassroots activity and more competitive elections.
    Small "d" democracy and a level playing field is for everyone, even those dastardly Republicans.
