How Competitive are 5 and 7?

Fritz Klug of the Gazette looks at how competitive Kalamazoo County Commission districts 5 and 7 are.  Unfortunately, his methodology is bad, at least in district 5.  He averages together the results of county commission elections from 2006, 2008, and 2010.  However, there were several uncontested elections in the average, which produces misleading results.
