Undemocratic

Santa MargaritaMarch 13, 2014 

My dictionary defines “democracy” as: “Control of an organization or group by the majority of its members.” Our Board of Supervisors would never support an undemocratic voting system that weighted the votes of certain individual supervisors over others.

Why then did a “majority” of the supervisors support an undemocratic voting system for a proposed water district in the Paso Robles area? Thank goodness that Bill Monning and the other “adults” in Sacramento are watching over us. They must think we are a bunch of rubes down here.
