Congratulations to Lavonta Williams, the newest member of the Wichita City Council — though the council’s sudden unanimous vote Tuesday in selecting her, after 20 consecutive tie votes last week, raised suspicions about whether all its meetings have been open. Williams should be a strong, knowledgeable District 1 representative and a valuable addition to the council. And as we’ve noted before, her selection appears to be historic on two fronts — the first time the council has had either three women members or two African-American members.
