Council Member Hans Riemer has used Facebook to weigh in on his colleague, Marc Elrich, who is running for Executive. Riemer and Elrich have cooperated on numerous progressive priorities like Elrich’s $15 minimum wage bill, Riemer’s bill to restore the county’s earned income tax credit, protecting Ten Mile Creek and instituting paid leave, but the two have occasionally disagreed on land use issues. Other than Nancy Floreen, who has endorsed Rose Krasnow, the other incumbent Council Members who aren’t running for Executive themselves have been quiet on the Executive race. We reprint Riemer’s Facebook post below. (Disclosure: your author was Riemer’s Chief of Staff from 2010 through 2014.)
