Want to see what’s happening in the Governing Board of Manassas Park? Tough cookies. Unless you’re not interested in anything that’s happened since December, 2007, you’re out of luck.
Government subjected to the people, by the insiders, for the powerful. And just in case you might be interested to see how city officials are spending your tax dollars and wielding the awesome power that Government can bring to bear, you can’t find out what they’re doing until months afterwards. I’m sure that will be adequate to a vast majority of Manassas Park residents, who can’t even seem to get more than one person to show up for a public hearing regarding their local regulation of your rights protected under the First Amendment regarding political free speech. Sleep on, dear citizens. Your overseers will ensure the chains of bondage rest lightly and comfortably upon your arms…
If sunlight disinfects government, what does the utter midnight blackness that pervades the operations of the City of Manassas Park yield? Yep, it yields our local equivalent to Kim Jong-Il.
Because the citizens have so far allowed this to happen.
