Councilman Goldman?

There's a possibility that former Wilder aide Paul Goldman may seek Manoli Loupassi's first district seat on Richmond's City Council.

Some might ask if Goldman, the mayor’s longtime friend, could work independently on council. Goldman says if he runs, he’ll focus on the needs of the 1st District: “In theory, that would require you to challenge the rest of the Council, that would require you to challenge the mayor. … I’m perfectly prepared to do that.”

If nothing else, it would be an entertaining race.

In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
