Pols distracted by details

Are politicians genetically predisposed to idiocy? Does a position of power preclude common sense? First, the skating rink and now the Easter Egg Hunt are demonized. Proper procedure not followed in one instance; basic and minimal maintenance work a misuse of public funds in the other.

Both of these projects were done with the hard work and mostly private funds of good citizens. Both were designed to give the youth of the city a fun outlet for their energy and happy times to remember always.

Is any of this nitpicking, hand wringing minutia worth what you are paying council members? Is there any hope for our country when from the bottom up our “leaders” practice distraction politics instead of focusing on the things that are tearing our municipalities apart?
