Previous Viewpoints have called some of our council members comedians. Discussion during a council meeting should be normal. Open discussion provides information. Some council members remain silent or are too busy texting to listeners during discussions, but when it comes time to vote they do so by what seems to be a predetermined outcome.
I am a registered Independent voter and not at all impressed by any candidate campaign at this time. I enjoy reading the Viewpoints in the Gazette. It’s the only reason I get the newspaper, but the articles have been quite liberal lately. Thanks to the Gazette for allowing the chance to express opinions without signature.
