In looking at dysfunction at higher levels of government, one of the main causes is elected officials placing the objectives of their political party over what might be best for the people they serve.

That is not the type of behavior we expect or would welcome among those who serve on the lowest levels of government — city officials and local specialty districts — and why we should discourage the direct involvement of political parties in those races.

I give facts credit they don’t do this in local elections but sure show their inability to keep their periodontal bias out of national and state politics. They will not report truth on dems.
