Another way to put that: Cleveland city council is expected this evening to vote to accept the resignation of Marty Keane and the approval of Charles Slife as his replacement. In keeping with city council's most treasured and dear assault on local democracy, Keane announced his resignation exactly two years into his term, which, by city charter, means that his selected replacement, pending obligatory approval, will serve the next two years and not have to run in a special election.

“Charles has the heart of service and has my full faith and support,” Councilman Keane said in a press release. “I know the people of Ward 17 will be excited to work with him.” He knows this, of course, because the people of Ward 17 will have no other choice in the matter.
