I strongly disagree with your editorial of Jan. 7, concerning the Alliance of Concerned Taxpayers’ efforts to find the truth. By your words, it seems the Clarion management does not like citizens having the right to legally petition their government if it causes them to change from “business as usual.” You also said it’s all right for our government to ignore the will of the people and furthermore to disobey the law if it does not favor the position of our elected officials. By your comments, when citizens take action it is undemocratic.
I think bad government can only happen when good people fail to act, and I would encourage everyone to get involved. A lot of good information can be found on the ACT Web site. Until the court decides who is telling the truth on this issue, I would recommend the Clarion refrain from their biased opinions and just report the facts.
