About that Las Vegas City Council Vacancy

There’s a vacancy on the Las Vegas city council. And a decision needs to be made whether the city council should appoint someone to fill that vacancy or hold a special election.

The argument against holding a special election – in which the citizens who will be represented actually get to, you know, choose the person to represent them – is that an election would be more expensive than, you know, “juicing” in a favored appointee.

But here’s the thing: Government is supposed to be rather limited in the things it does. And conducting elections is one of the legitimate things government is supposed to do. So hold the special election and pay for it with funds from something the government ISN’T supposed to do. How difficult is that?
