And for those who suggest that we cover newly elected Commissioner David Madore too much consider this:
- He's the new guy on the block.
- He has different ideas than almost any recent elected official.
- He is controversial. Some would say polarizing.
- He creates strong reactions.
- Folks tend to either love him or hate him. Respect him or disrespect him.
- He is looking at the way things are done by government.
- He is provocative.
All of this adds up to coverage. It's really News 101.
