First, a contribution to Rep. Amy Carter, the chairman of the committee that must pass any city bills if they are going to take the issue back up in the next year. Rep. Carter is the person who reportedly penned a letter giving the city advocacy groups until Nov. 15 to submit agreed upon boundaries. These are not boundaries that have been voted upon by anyone, agreed to by anyone in the public - just a group of former or wanna-be politicians sitting around negotiating the land right out from under our feet. How does that feel? Is this how government that is "closer to the people" is supposed to operate? Do you feel like you have any of that "local control" we keep hearing about?
