Maxed Out 

It takes two to tango


Page 3 of 3

2011 is a year of potential new beginnings. We're going to elect a new council. Unlike some, I don't believe we're going to throw out everyone who currently holds that job title. It's not unlikely we'll have a new mayor; I don't know how much more vitriol Ken can absorb. We'll have a new administrator and a new OCP. I can only hope the new players finally deliver on the oft-abandoned promise of open, transparent government.

The other thing I can only hope for is a more enlightened, engaged population. If our government has a duty to govern and lead in our best interests, we have a concomitant duty to be engaged and understand the issues, not sit back and bitch about everything after the fact.

A dance is more beautiful when both partners play their part.
