While it's not good to see so many people fairly upset withthe lack of progress made on a number of local issues at the recently completedlegislative session, it is good to know that folks are engaged, or at leastinterested on decisions made and not made. After all, these delicate and oftendifficult decisions that are the responsibility of our elected officials willimpact you, one way or another.
One suggestion made annually when some folks don't like thedecisions made, or the relative inaction on major issues, is the call to throwthe bums out. Yet we re-elect over 90% of our elected officials locally andnationally year after year. Yes, over 90%. So if we don't care for the way theinstitution is operating, why do we bring back the same-old, same-old and thenwonder why things don't improve or change to our liking?
