OTV: Edinger Acted Like An Old Fart

OrangeTV: Graves vs Edinger was pretty wild. Graves was respectful, thoughtful and eloquent and I agreed with basically everything he had to say. Edinger on the other hand, true to character, was a grumpy old fart - he just couldn’t let the “75 year old geezer” thing go and he came across as rude and enormously condescending the way he asked Graves “Why are you running for MY seat?!?” He could have asked any number of questions that would have contributed to the discussion in a meaningful way but instead he made it all about him. It was like Grandpa was an hour past nap time and was getting grumpy and rummy. I do have a lot of respect for his time serving the city, but I do think it’s time for him to step aside and make way for some freshness.

Question: How much of a factor for you is 75YO Ron Edinger's age in the 2011 City Council elections?
