I actually like having Bratina in council - it's rare to have an eloquent, urban, fiscally conservative voice in the room. Somebody who wants to keep the city's wallet shut but doesn't want to hand the keys to the city over to the suburban builders. Maybe staying in the mall wasn't a good idea, but I still think it was important to point out what a bad deal taxpayers are getting for city hall office space in a building that isn't exactly from the glory days of architecture, nor perfectly located.

But I wouldn't support him for mayor. He tries to juggle his beliefs in tightening purse strings and downtown redevelopment, and too often ends up dropping all the eggs and making a mess. I think his voice is important to council, but I wouldn't want to see him leading it.
