Santa Rosa Argues District (Ward) Elections

Just as we've seen some in Eureka advocating stricter ward elections, it looks like some Santa Rosans want to switch to district elections. In Eureka, city council candidates must live in a certain ward and run for that ward's seat, but they're elected by the city at large.

I get the impression there's no residency requirement in Santa Rosa and candidates are elected at- large from anywhere in the city by the whole city. A bit different, but the arguments remain the same. Here's one guy arguing the YES side of city elections, and another guy voting against.
