If this is the actual intellectual method Daysog uses to make decisions on items before the city council we should begin a recall process on his term today!
Without getting into all that was said here, the ole "we trust staff" mantra has been uttered at LOTS of council meetings! I wish that the intellectual methods were enough to get the residents active enough to actually think about recall elections. I really do. Too many residents are sitting back saying "the council knows what its doing..."
I keep remembering President Ronald Reagan's line: "trust but verify". I recently heard a story of how many police agencies across the country acquired excess military equipment from Homeland Security. The stories would have been funny if not so ridiculous. A lot of it had to be given back to Homeland Security because it just didn't make sense. I think in one case some police thought they needed a tank, but then realized that they had no where to park the thing and no idea how to get parts for it. And of course, where would they actually use it?
