Just because both candidates for mayor are running unopposed in their party primaries, that doesn't mean tomorrow's election isn't important.
Besides mayor, Philadelphians will be nominating their party's candidates for City Council, sheriff, city commissioners, register of wills, clerk of courts and Common Pleas, Municipal and Traffic Courts.
All Pennsylvanians will be nominating candidates for Supreme, Superior and Commonwealth courts.
Some of these jobs are arguably as vital as mayor - if lower-profile and perhaps less glamorous.
No Philadelphian should have to be told how important City Council is. Whoever the mayor is needs Council if anything is to be accomplished. History should have taught us how devastating an inept or overly fractious Council can be.
