Question of the Day — why Not Hession?

Hession ready as acting mayor: West's departure sparks jockeying for city's top political posts/Mike Prager, Spokesman-Review

About Hession: A longtime business attorney and former Spokane Park Board member, Hession is widely viewed as a cautious deliberator not given to quick, unstudied decisions. He promised during an interview on Monday to maintain West's administrative staffing for the time being. He would have to leave his law practice and become a full-time mayor under the City Charter.

Question: Rather than put the city of Spokane through another election grind after the long West controversy, wouldn't it be a good idea now to simply make straight man Dennis Hession mayor?
