Remember, city councilors can resign for ANY reason, even bogus made up reasons . . . Darrin Smith.
So let’s pretend for a moment that Knudson wins the AT-LARGE seat. What is preventing her from resigning in a year or even in a few months?
De has already admitted she is running because she couldn’t recruit anyone to run against Kermit. Pretty much saying she wants to prevent Kermit from being on the council again. If she wins, she achieves her ultimate goal, and really has no reason to stick around for the next 4 years. She can resign and be safely reassured that the rest of the council will appoint a yes man/woman.
Hopefully this question will be asked in a forum or debate.
