Looks like Mary-Kay will have more to worry about than how you equate the cost of sprinklers to the cost of a human life. (Easy, as long as you remember to carry the one). I've heard that there is a veteran challenger looking to shake the dust off his door-knocking boots (don't read the last three words too fast, this is a family blog). I am not at liberty to say who this may be, but since I live in the District, I am excited that we will get a council race just like just about every other district (except District 5, I guess)
Even MORE importantly, maybe this will get Mary-Kay back to her door-knocking ways and I will be able to ask her about county mandated elevators, lawn-care, personal chefs...and the like, in furtherance of her efforts to equate expenditures of others to life-saving mandates. (Note that property taxes are unaffected by whether you have a sprinkler system...they didn't care THAT much.)
As soon as this is made official, I'll pass the word.
