Democracy at work

Posted By on Tue, Jun 26, 2007 at 8:25 AM

Yeah, sure the Democrat-Gazette covered the NLR Council last night. But you want gavel-to-gavel coverage? The Levy Project is the place for you. Minute detail of the public comment period, from the woman whose neighbor works on his glass-pack equipped car all night to the coming discussion of an ordinance limiting how long you can put mobile storage units in your yard. Whether the volunteer blogger can keep it up remains to be seen, but it's indispensable for Argentians. (For good measure, the blogger throws in the D-G coverage so you needn't buy a paper to get that.)

We liked the proposal to register meth cookers like sex offenders and the woman who lectured the council for not paying close enough attention to the public comments.

Sherry Chriswell then spoke and in her best school marm imitation chastised council members for not paying attention to the public commenters. She pointed to several saying, "this man is rocking like he is tired and this man is sitting there laughing" and she said the audience deserves the same respect as they give to the council.
