Anan on how Oak Park is “a Middle Eastern democracy”

In Anna Lothson’s very interesting post-election interview:

“We are not doing our trustees justice by not making them campaign and earn their vote. To me it’s the underlying issue of what is wrong with our town,” Abu-Taleb said. “One of my goals is to end this madness of having elections that are unopposed. … This is a Middle Eastern democracy as far as I’m concerned. I’ve lived in the Middle East and I don’t like it. I don’t like their kind of democracy. People need to step up.”
