When I was a resident advisor during my undergrad, there was a rule that a student had to live in residence a full year - not just one semester - before they were allowed to apply for the position of resident advisor. I'm fairly sure that's the same at most colleges and universities. It meant a few great potential RAs couldn't get in, but by and large it safeguarded how well the job was done and who knew the culture best.

That was to represent a few dozen students on pretty minor stuff and provide a minimal amount of leadership!

However, in our city, we have no such standard or residency requirement for who will represent tens of thousands of people in an area, for four years, on matters of much greater importance.
