Two Erie County town boards are just the right size, according to voters.
On Tuesday night, propositions to increase the Alden and West Seneca boards from three to five members were rejected in propositions on Election Day. Both boards, through a petition drive, were downsized by voters in 2009.
However, the three-member boards felt as though there were limitations on what they could do with three and without any petition - just another example of government overstepping its boundaries - put the proposition to voters.
Maybe these lawmakers felt as though they were being overworked, much like our Chautauqua County legislators even though there are 25 of them.
County voters here, of course, told their reps in Mayville last year how misguided they were by approving a downsizing plan to 19 members by an 87 percent to 13 percent margin.
If legislators of the downsized boards are still sulking after the defeats and believe they are being overworked, this is America. They have the option to quit.
