I will cast a vote this year for a public office that deals with a host of pressing public issues: economic development, agriculture, urban infrastructure, environmental quality, and land use, to name just a few. What’s more, the official who wins the office will have some serious authority, including the power to levy taxes and borrow money without approval of other elected officials or voters. I can’t think of another position in my state with that sort of unchecked power (even if it’s limited to certain places and objectives).
