Farr's name is recognizable by many, maybe even most, people across the City.

It seems that MANY voters will vote for a candidate based on this name recognition alone. Really, who needs a platform, or experience, as long as this remains true?

How else to explain the power of incumbency? Or Bob Bratina for that matter.

(I have a niggling worry that not-Lloyd Ferguson could actually win Ward 2 on this basis. We could conceivably elect to council somebody who has not even campaigned, or who may have put his name on the ballot as a lark.)
