    It’s the people stupid! Why do we elect unethical people to office and then have to pay money to people to yell about their unethical behavior. We are nuts!

      “Why do we elect unethical people to office”
      Good question. The better question: why do we keep re-electing them?

        Because the way the political and electoral systems work hand in hand, we’re consistently given a choice between Frankenstein and Dracula. Plus, politicians are given free rein to openly lie to us during their campaigns with no threat of criminal or civil punishment. We keep reelecting them because voters are forced to vote for the lesser of 2 evils. But we still end up with an ‘evil’ in the end.

    The BoS copping out on something? Not wanting to disclose information to the public? What a shocking bit of news!! And in other groundbreaking discoveries, today, it has been found that water is wet.

    Any rational person would say it’s crazy for the Supervisors to forego disclosing a cost analysis on the ballot measure. The voters are left completely in the dark on the amount they’re going to get billed if they approve the measure. What happened to consumer protection? Disclosure is the #1 cardinal rule.
    Red flags should pop up everywhere here. Why are they hiding the costs from the taxpayers? This would be like showing someone the pricetag on a new car after they’ve made the purchase and then holding them to the deal.
    This county has really jumped the shark. It’s being run Obama style.

    How about this for the anti argument on the ballot:

    “This proposal is so lame and so poorly conceived, and so hazy that the Supervisors couldn’t, or wouldn’t tell you how much it is going to cost. They either don’t know or they don’t want you to know.”
