I had to laugh, as I couldn't agree more with this letter from Donny Carroll in today's Eureka Reporter. Oh, I suppose I could disagree just a little bit: Eureka is a unique place, but so is everywhere else.
Our very own Greg "Vote Local Control" Connors once again enters the limelight with yet another letter to the Eureka Reporter. Didn't you just have one published, Greg?
Anyway, not sure just what he's trying to say. I'll assume, after reading what he's posted on the various blogs, he's suggesting that elected leadership is preferable to appointed leadership. I have a hard time swallowing that, Greg.
It will take some work to convince me that just because someone gets elected by the 50.5% of those that chose to vote, he or she will do any better job than someone is appointed by our representatives on the city council.
Of course, those representatives might well have been elected by that same 50.5% of the people themselves!
