MAYOR'S BOOK CLUB SELECTION BELITTLES DEMOCRACY

You may have heard that the Mayor is leading a book club meeting at Arts Riot in early July, using Edward Glaeser's book Triumph of the City

Here is a representative quote from the Mayor's chosen book:

“It’s easy to idolize democracy, but effective city governments usually need leaders who govern with a firm hand, unencumbered by checks and balances and free from the need to heed the wishes of every disgruntled citizen.” 

Go ahead, if you have the stomach for it, and get your copy of the book, a propaganda piece for his policies, paid for with tax payer funds, at the library and join in the discussion. If the Mayor will deign to let citizens get a word in edgewise between his firm hands.
