I believe that a DPL election with a single candidate, no matter whom,
would be unfortunate.

Campaigning periods are some of those few moments when people sit down
and discuss publicly project vision, goals, "politics", etc. A campaign
with a single candidate will diminish the attractiveness of posing
questions to the sole candidate and, as a consequence, the interest of
the debate. More generally, recent elections seem to show that the more
the candidates, the more interesting and useful the debate.

... furthermore, I'm not ready to give up so easily the possibility of
increasing my free time starting from April 18th :-)
