"Harrell would be a better council member in the new districts system, in which he'd be responsible only to South Seattle rather than the whole city."
You have an odd concept of the district system. District representatives on the city council still govern the entire city. They are *answerable* to the district that elects them, and need to make certain the concern of that district are heard and addressed, but they are still *responsible* for the entire city. I's not like Harrell becomes the mayor of District 2 and has no impact anywhere else.
If you didn't think he was doing a good job on city council before, how would that same performance be better now?
