Once more citizens are required to descend on their elected officials in order to get them to do what common sense would demand they do. Once more citizens have to closely babysit their government to prevent it from departing from their clearly and consistently stated will. It shouldn’t be so difficult to get elected officials to do the job they promised us they would do, but in today’s political environment it seems frustratingly common that citizens have to maintain close tabs on their elected officials.
Today’s editorial in the Washington Times succinctly lays out what shouldn’t require hours of discussion today, but certainly will:
And it is working. Illegal immigrants are leaving Prince William County in particular, and Virginia in general. Already, the county’s public schools have reported a huge decline in students registered in English as a second language courses. So, it’s strange that Mr. Principi would be so adamant in rejecting the crackdown. It’s cheap, popular and effective.
Citizens time is at 2:00PM at the McCoart Center, and you need to be there. Don’t go wobbly on us, supervisors.
