The latest New York City campaign is winding down to a foregone conclusion on Nov. 3 for those on the Democratic line, while independent Mayor Mike appears to be a heavy favorite. If the figures can be believed, only 2 percent of the city’s population voted in the recent runoff election, and not too many more made the effort in the primary two weeks earlier. And it only cost us taxpayers about $15 million for each trip to the ballot box! Comment.
