Behaviour like this is slippery, agreed. Perception is reality, and the savvy incumbent would be tracking lieu time, as has been suggested. Even so, incumbents usually have a tactical home field advantage.

The one thing you could (and should) reasonably do is to disallow "Ward Update" political literature and the like to be printed and distributed on the public dime once the door opens for challengers in the spring. It's just info propaganda, and sometimes it's as discerning as a daisy-cutter: Less than two weeks ago I received just that kind of paper from Councillors Bratina and McHattie, even though I'm smack-dab in the middle of Ward 2.
