Recalled 3 people and the vote was still 4-3. Hanging on by a thread…
Well, my friends who are residents of the city want to find out who those 3 are and if doable, recall them too. A merit based system is the fairest way. There are no quotas, no favortism, no advantage to any one ethnic group. One simply needs to have the grades in order to get in. Should we mandate that the NBA include some Chinese (regardless of ability) because well there is not enough representation? Of course not.
