Mayor Lozeau diffuses a citizen revolt of oneSeptember 26, 2008
This is an article from a local-ish paper here in New Hampshire. It struck me as amusing, poignant, and sweet. It sounds like Nashua (about 85,000 people, or 14 Wasillas) has a really decent Mayor.

Mayor Lozeau diffuses a citizen revolt of one
By ALBERT McKEON Staff Writer
History will show that the David Hillel Wilson Revolution was short lived. On Monday, the 47-year-old unemployed computer scientist climbed the steps of City Hall armed with a blunt instrument of revolt: a paper declaring his independence from the city of Nashua. He had enough of the government “kicking me when I was down.”
But Wilson quickly abandoned his insurrection when the chief envoy of the city – Mayor Donnalee Lozeau – peacefully negotiated a settlement.
It’s always nice hearing about the small town politics of one on one, helping your neighbor, instead of the chaos and grandiose stagecraft of the national political sphere.
