What makes Sinanyan a 'front-runner'?

Your description of a Glendale City Council candidate as “considered a front-runner” in the field piques my curiosity (“Sinanyan keeps seat for now,” March 13). This undefined pronouncement makes me wonder who is doing the considering. The article's author? The News-Press editor? Outside expert(s)? A Glendalian stopped on the street?

What criteria were used to rank the field, and based on what evidence? Campaign contributions? Likes on Facebook? Polling data? Subjective impressions?

I look forward to greater clarity in your continuing coverage of the election.
