Weighs in on council divisions

To the editor:

Now, let me get this straight: the "old guard" council members are accusing the new guard of having a personal agenda? Wow! That's the pot calling the kettle black. After pretty much having their way for years, there is now a resistance to irresponsible spending. I applaud that big time.

Show me one person who gets into government, at any level, that does not have personal agendas. The secret, though, is to incorporate those pursuits into fair representation of the voters.

Don Wilson is right about one thing: for years, he's been like a fly on the wall. Now he has support on issues that the voters have clearly showed their feelings on.

My question is this: why is there a division of ideas so blatant, when you were all elected to represent the constituents?

How does that verse go? A house divided soon crumbles.
