On Civility

It’s been my experience that in the last 15 years or so the level of civility at city council meetings has taken a nosedive.  I don’t know whether is reflective of community conditions, single issue candidates, personal ego issues, televising of council meetings or what the reason is.  I can only say that the level of discourse has deteriorated.  I found this article particularly interesting and breath of fresh air.  I urge all council members and local government managers to share this with their elected body (of course, that too could come with a risk in the present climate….).
