PBOT as sinecure

The O asks a good question when they wonder how Tom Miller can be the best person for the job of leading the Portland Bureau of Transportation, but they are wrong to blame the commission form of government.  It is a virtue of that system that we know so clearly who is responsible for the appointment.  Adams made that pick, and he can and should be held accountable for it in the 2012 elections.  Evaluating politicians for their actions is our responsibility as citizens, no system or process will protect us if we fail to meet it.
