People want their local government to be consistent, stable, and in the


background.

If folks are talking about their local government, then at least one of those things isn't happening. Questions about whether the folks pulling levers of power have kept campaign promises, are civil to one another, allowing/promoting incivility, are self-enriching, are choosing party over community, are committed to stable government, and are basing policy on evidence are all ripe for discussion in a democracy.

Nobody deserves to be harassed, humiliated, or harangued in an uncivil manner. This is why Boyles is quitting and why others won't touch Charlottesville with a 100 foot pole. But the concept applies everywhere, and it would seem there is a direct correlation between incivility and dysfunctional local governments.
