What a Joke

While it is hard for me to withhold a smile with the new Crystal city council being sworn in on January 6, one glance at the work session packet makes me shake my head.

The item in question is “Appointments to the Blue Line Extension Advisory Committees.” This is of course the committee to force light rail on Highway 81 (or as the elites call it Bottineau Boulevard.)

Now check out the expectations of committee members and you will see why my mood sours;

Serve a 2-year term and attend meetings

Boring enough…..

Actively participate in discussions; be a voice to advance the broaderĀ interests of community

Let’s hope or why bother going.

Report back to the community group represented

Provide feedback on communication and public involvement efforts

Now check out these last two;

Listen to and respect the viewpoints of others

Accept outcomes of Met Council decisions

So you’re supposed to listen and respect the viewpoints of other….unless you’re the Met Council. Then you don’t have to listen or respect anyone.

Get rid of the Met Council!!!!

    To quote my good friend, Michelle MacDonald, you have the rights the Government says you have.
