City Council needs to listen to public, not pretend to listen

Mayor Kellar seems to believe that anyone who originally opposed the roundabout should have no voice on what sort of art display will be chosen or whether to “do nothing.”

He is wrong.

When a large component of the community recently voted, by survey, to “do nothing,” Mayor Kellar accused us of doing so because we didn’t like the roundabout itself. (How he came up with this soul-reading ability to determine motives is a question worth exploring on its own.)

In this self-serving sham of merely pretending to listen to the community, the City Council (with the exception of TimBen Boydston) has, for the third time, (the library and the salary increase for council members being the first two) dismissed and diminished the citizens that council members claim to represent.

It appears the City Council makes its decisions in private and then goes through the motions of involving the community before returning to the decisions originally made.

Have they all forgotten that an election is coming up?
