September 15, 2013

If you ask your Chautauqua County legislator to speak about their accomplishments, normally you will get a discussion about issues. What you will not get is an answer....

Fred Croscut needed to go. He had no clue what was going on anyways.

It should be even less than 19 and there should be term limits. It should not be a career position. 4 years and out!!! Compensation should be minimal. There a lot of people serving voluntarily on boards and doing more work and spending more time doing it.

I agree with Decronig totally! No wonder many newspapers are going belly up. Most reporters and some Editors just don't get it, are not involved, do not ask the right questions, and in general have a poor understanding of what's going on with government on any level. That's why we get these silly little simple stories written for Middle Schoolers. Get with it reporters! You owe it to the public to explain things. If you don't. who will tell the people?? I am not including the editors of our local papers because there have been some good editorials but in general we are being cheated.

I completely agree with a smaller legislature, however, we know nothing will get done unless they really stop fighting to show which political party has the power and join together to move our county forward.

This is silly beyond words, try to divine an ideological argument from a goofy poll & goofier polling data. Voters, when 87% polled say they want the legislature reduced from 25 to 19, they're responding because they're happy with their guy & party, but not with any other legislator or opposing party.

Its the same voter sentiment seen with Congress: respondents they like their guy & party, but blame the other congressmen & opposition for all the "problems".

Its about popularity & dislikes, with NOTHING to do with efficiencies. This clueless church lady gaggle OBSERVER board should show its REAL polling acumen & share its wisdom with all the upcoming HS homecoming king & queen elections...
