What could be better for a relatively recent political movement created by a group of residents to improve their lives in their own neighborhood and its environs than to climb the political ladder to the national scene within less than a decade? Probably nothing, apart from the concern that this remarkable change might end up causing a tear in the fabric of the movement that heralded a significant change in the attitude of many young couples and families toward the municipality as a service provider.

Rachel Azaria is, by all accounts, a great success story.
