To me, one of the hazards of addressing situations such as this (when it seems like what's been foisted on interested parties is plain crap) is the tendency to demonize Councillors.

Besides the fact that it really doesn't frame honest future engagement all that well (and I'm being facetious here...), it also means that there's this view of Council as a group who -in camera- sit around wringing their hands while bellowing 'Mwuhahahahaha!"

If they were, then we'd have a dynamic that actually could bear less bitter fruit.

But they're not. (And if you believe they are, then I think you have sufficient motivation to correcting the situation.) They're pretty much the same people who were voted in last time, and all things being equal, they'll be the same bunch voted in next time. So with this variable kindasorta locked in, a better regard of the other variables at play is called for. Isn't it...?

Hmm... I can see it now: a panel discussion entitled 'Managing Your Councillor'.
