WDT:| Herrings dissolution moving forward

   There is so little interest in local government and in the Village of Herrings in particular that turning out the lights requires a state agency to come in and end it all.
    Only three showed up at a public hearing on dissolution They shouldn't feel bad, as I bet a dissolution hearing in any municipality would attract similar interest.
    The transition from community to regionalism marches on and in the process local people who do care lose their voice, but frankly when no one runs for office or understands how government is structured, why not turn it over to the professionals ?
      One nation under DANC with Tug Hill Commissions and steering councils for all.

Very clever ending line. I hope you don't get someone fired from DANC like you did the food critic.

This reminds me that the other day when you were talking to Mr. Francis on your show, I heard you make an eloquent case for a limited government that answers to the local people. Of course in practice you love zombie house laws to come down from Albany, instead of handling them at the city level. But kudos to you for at least understanding the concept of limited government.

One is reminded that each state and county and municipality has their own laws, and is free to write new ones (as long as its not about gay marriage or abortions, because the illiberals want the courts to write those laws). Yet illiberals are constantly crying because congress does not pass one giant gun law, banning all guns or whatever.

Of course when congress does pass a giant law, such as laws against pot, then the illiberals just ignore the rule of law and legalize pot in their states.

It's a step Herrings should have taken long ago. That should happened decades ago when the paper mill folded. It's been a progression straight down ever since. The fire department folded and finally people realize it's just too small to provide services. Although larger than Herrings, I expect Deferiet will eventually follow the same path.
