Are city councils too small for political competition?
Are bears better at dancing than debating? Presumed Dead is a book that shows what can go wrong in a Westminster System council ruled by partisan duopoly when it supposed to consider approval of development of a megacasino. It takes an independent councillor who is elected mayor to inaugurate a non-partisan council. This is a political crime thriller that exposes weaknesses familiar in town hall politics, with entertaining drama and a positive perspective.
