Citizens get public officials’ attention — with disruptions at meetings

"We represent the people," Pixley said, "but people need to respect the council also."

The people are showing the politicians EXACTLY the same level of ‘respect’ the politicians show the people.  Politicians hold the people in contempt.  Why should we not feel the same about them, especially when all they can do is threaten us with cuts in safety services if we deign to vote against millage renewals or increases and associated increases in spending and perks for the aforementioned politicians.

These politicians are just lucky tar and feathering is no longer in style – but perhaps it should be revived.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." Thomas Jefferson

We NEED the government to fear the people.
