When our best choose not to serve

Corridor news service polling illustrates that office holders at the county, state and federal levels will have a difficult time being re-elected in 2010 and beyond. At the local level, recall is becoming more seriously considered and a more immediate resolution in county, cities and districts. Our councils, boards, state legislature and national congress are growing increasingly and rapidly at-odds with WE, the people, and our rights to govern ourselves.
With a majority in corridor neighborhoods reporting anti-incumbent preferences, campaigns ramping their office holdersâ€™ images with voters will find firm, well-prepared opposition. New candidates will need to find moderate political views, fiscal responsibility and strong obedience to the will of WE, the people, for their campaigns. And candidate leaning away from the moderate center and fiscal responsibility will be silently disregarded.
When the best among our representatives decide to leave office because partisan politics defies the will of the people and bipartisan responsibility to serve, neighbors feel what is left simply is not worth keeping.
