Our city council wasting time

Original post made by Bye bye LaDoris, Charleston Gardens, on Sep 10, 2007

Rather than deal with the important issues (i.e. infrastructure issues etc.) facing the city, council member Cordell is wasting time on nonsensical issues:

Clearly our city council has no desire to face the tough issues and deal with them in a competent manner.

As I consider the actions of the Council I am reminded of the story "The Ugly Americans" where building edifices was considered a better use of aid money than something ugly like improving the breed of chickens.

Of course our City Council doesn't want to deal with the "real issues" like infrastructure; it is an election year and four of them will be out of office by the end of the year. This is a lame duck City Council

Is that lame duck, or just "lame"? What a disappointment. Why can't we get pot-hole-fillers instead of these pipedreamers? Don't we have anybody who wants to do the work?

I wish that the standard for removing criticism of city hall from this forum was the same as the standard for removing criticism of the president.
