Yep, read this mornings DJ article about tonights meeting and am astounded with Fred Pitts’ attitude that he (the council) does not need the citizens input about anything. They are about to spend $35 milllion on a general operating budget plus additional millions on college tuition, road overlays, swimming pool, basketball court and, since we havent’t seen a proposed budget, who knows what else. This is the very reason for a peoples uprising. If, WE THE PEOPLE, no longer have a voice in local city government, how do you think we can ever accomplish anything as a nation.If the City Coouncil knows what is best or us, then we have lost our freedoms so why bother with electiions. Just let the chosen few appoint the Council members. See you tonight..
