Letters to the Editor, June 15 - 18

They are unable to make strong, reasonable arguments for their position and cannot make an informed decision, (which one expects from elected officials), yet they have the right to make insupportable judgements that affect so many. There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

A city is a living body, not a machine. It doesn’t need mechanics to keep an eye on operation, it needs sustenance to grow and progress. City governments owe it to their citizens to do everything they can to empower them.

In a free society, people do have the right to be wrong. However, elected officials can be held accountable for decisions that run counter to the majority. All political power is inherent in the people.

Government is founded on their authority and instituted for their benefit. The people always have the right to change their government in any way they see fit.

If it must come down to November, so be it. Safe access to a local dispensary will be a campaign issue. Any candidate for city council who supports that ideal, without equivocation, should be considered.
