Let voters decide
Who’s in charge? Our city government is in a dream world, they spend more freely than our overspent federal government. Is it budget time? When is there going to be a meeting? They all need to go back to school to learn budgeting, a budget is based on your income not your dreams. You cannot continue to bond for every dream it needs to stop; we must live with what we have to spend. We must get rid of the dreamer city planner who wants to spend to satisfy the elite groups and to heck with the taxpayers. Beautiful credit! The foundation of modern society. Who shall say that this is not the golden age of mutual trust, of unlimited reliance upon human promises? Some in our city government would have us believe we need to become a progressive city by spending beyond our means, this sounds like bovine scatology to me. It’s not how much we spend that will make us progressive, it is how much we can work together to make our city proud. We must rid our city of lifelong politicians and elect new people who are willing to serve and I mean serve not dictate. You the voter can control city government by not re-electing anyone who has served eight years. They become obstinate and will not talk to you if you have ideas contrary to theirs. Have you ever tried to talk to some of these or waited for their return call?
No country can be well governed unless its citizens as a body keep religiously before their minds that they are the guardians of the law (government) and are the machinery for its execution, nothing more. Let the voters decide bond issues.
