An Important Meeting

This evening at 6:00pm, City Council will decide on the fate of the ballot petition submitted by Dan Poresky and other members of his action committee. If council approves the petition, which contains over 4,500 signatures, the scheme to privatize the water will be effectively halted.* It is essential for those who believe that the water system should remain under city operation to attend the meeting. Only your presence will convince City Council that their vote does have political consequences.

*If Council votes no, or doesn't vote, voters will be asked in May if it should appear on the ballot in November:  By then, the water lease will be a done deal.

I just read about the outcome on the Easton newspaper website. You have got to be kidding me. Those council members with the exception of Eichenwald are all bought and sold. The comments of the Council's President are just absurd. If so many people are up in arms about this, why wouldn't they want the people's input. What are they scared of? King Edwin's wrath and his $$$? This council is a joke.

I write this at 2:00 AM, after the meeting.

Council to the citizens of Allentown:
GO TO HELL WITH YOUR CONCERNS AND YOUR PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY!

And so it goes. A broken system, culturally and politically bankrupt, if not economically. Yet.
