IF YOU’VE BEEN FOLLOWING the local news you know by now that Coun. Tina Lange will no longer be seeking a seat in the council in the next elections. It came as a surprise, and it has created quite a few ripples. Not all good, unfortunately.
If politicians in general can expect to be discussed ad nauseum by those they lead, being at distance from people (literally) can provide a buffer zone of sorts. Local politicians on the other hand do not get that privilege. They are out and about in the community, doing things, living their lives the way every one of us does.
