Citing potential "distractions" stemming from her arrest on suspicion of cocaine possession and child endangerment, City Councilwoman Stacey Murphy resigned from the City Council Tuesday, ending a more than eight-year run on the dais and setting the stage for a special election to fill her seat. In a letter addressed to City Manager Mary Alvord, Murphy said it was with a heavy heart that she was stepping down from the council. "This is not an easy decision for me personally, however, for the best interests of our city, and my children, it is the right thing to do," she wrote.

OK. We want a nice, clean fight. Nothing below the belt. Keep your hands up. As this year's political competition kicks in to high gear, let's make sure the discourse brings dignity to the city, not disgrace. In a nation where ideology seems to trump pragmatism, we want to remind the candidates running for the school board and the City Council that political infighting and cynicism only bring on more of the same. And in the end, it clouds the issues and the voter pays the price.
