Community Climate Only as Good as Its Metro Council Member?

Progressive Nashville notices the bungled demo that disemboweled a bungalow and pays respect where it is due:
So, did the building get knocked down because [Council Member Mike] Jameson went on vacation? Nope. But the immediate response of the builder, who proactively contacted the neighborhood by posting an apology and explanation within hours to the neighborhood listserv, reflects the climate of a community, unique in this era, which has come to trust its representatives and to expect timely and reliable information. Although things may not always go as planned, even the unplanned demolitions developments will be reasonable and transparent. That is very much Jameson's doing.
As it should be the doing of every CM.
