That's a good question that I do not know the answer to.
I can tell you this about Lincoln, NE - it is run by a bunch of people who think it's a town of about 20,000 people, not 250,000. They fail to plan for roads, city growth, proper taxation, infrastructure development, etc. They seem to think it's still the 1940s, and they vehemently resist any change that would bring the town anywhere near the latter half of the 20th Century.
Maybe the protesters didn't have to be so close. I don't know. But I'll pretty much guarantee you that nobody in the City government knows, either.
