Mandelbaum Wins Big On Water Quality

“Outside of city issues, Mandelbaum’s win is important for several reasons. For one, it replaces a Republican who leveraged her position to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for statewide GOP candidates (and clearly, Mandelbaum is no slouch in the fundraising department). It also lifts up a solidly progressive torchbearer to the city council who still has widespread respect in the business community. And finally, it gives Democrats something they don’t have much of in this state: a young, inspiring, ambitious leader who has a platform in a key elected position. If Mandelbaum spends many years on the city council, Democrats and progressives will be plenty happy. If he looks to higher office at some point, all the better.”
