At the very least, there needs to be some sort of public “This was wrong” statement from the city’s government or council. Not an apology – that’s largely meaningless, but some admission that this was wrong. I’d go for a recall, as well. This wouldn’t be just because “we don’t like her,” but put in terms as a response for cause and wrongdoing.
This is a culture war. It needs to be fought as a war.
