A Rouge for City Council?

Mavodones’ challenger is Wellington “Wells” Lyons, a 30-year-old attorney and activist who works for a small start-up that makes accessories for iPhones and other devices. Lyons is smart and personable, and he’s running a real campaign. For example, unlike most candidates for municipal office around here, he has a campaign manager. Unlike Mavodones, Lyons has a Web site ( and a Facebook page dedicated to his campaign. And he’s already mustered a small army of volunteers (over 100 people so far) to do outreach on his behalf.
