Radical idea: try a two party system!

Here's a novel idea:

"You might prefer just to vote only for candidates who take a pledge to do the best they can to hold down costs, and then kick them out after four years if they fail to meet your standard.

I point out, with no ulterior motive, this is easier to do if you have a strong two-party system."

That's part of a
Waldo Profitt column. Makes you wonder why Sarasota County hasn't tried that approach for 42 years.
