Remind Me Again

why we want to replace the state constitution with one providing for more local control? Stories like this one about a mayor who instigated a theft investigation when the council loaned a police car to the neighboring town really make me wonder. For more examples of professionalism on the local level, see here, and here.
I guess if the choice is between local goobers and centralized goobers, I'll pick the former. Their goofiness has a much smaller sphere of operation.
