"Another example that it is time that "aldermanic privilege" was eliminated. It is one thing for an alderman to be an advocate for the needs and concerns of his constituents, but the parochialism of the "privilege" practice is such that it inhibits a comprehensive approach to city planning and economic development and allows aldermen to dodge their responsibility to take a broad view of what is in the best interests of the whole city and as a result we all suffer in the long run." —Anon [Ald. Reilly Puts the Brakes on Wolf Point]
