"They can do all they want. If they're not held accountable (ie, 'judged' by a discerning populace), then whose fault is this?"

Ours. Well, more precisely, the pluralities and majorities that voted for these and other bumbling politicians. And then we (the losers) probably make things worse by striking an overly oppositional pose to this misguided use of power, and that further polarizes the pluralities/majorities that made it happen in the first place, reinforcing the rule of our unqualified elite.

"And why should this be a once-every-four-years situation? Why don't we have something in place that allows for people to have an opportunity to 'review' their Councillors?"

Hey, I'm all for it. That and recall powers. Just tell me where to sign. But isn't meeting our councilors without the power to actually meaningfully censure them mere window dressing?
