Me think that you have it wrong. Most voters do trust him to do what is in their interest not the usual self dealing and arrogance that we get from Catlin and Thompson. He has made mistakes-but so have the others.
As other commenters have noted given some of the past antics of Catlin and the rest of the "stooges" they are in no position to throw stones. Unlike them, none of his supporters have engageed in dirty tricks to embarrass another person- like stealing personal notes and unlawfully leaking information from his confidential HR records. Those are simple facts which only in this town aren't prosecuted. Imagine if it had been Barfield or Davis? Some of the things done to him, represent the worst in our politics. So at least for me, I'll give him another chance. We have transparency and no taxpayer funding for an arts council and a ball team---primarily thanks to him. So we can blast him for mistakes- but remember he has helped many of us by being there.
