Voters’ voice in government



I read with interest the “guest editorial” from the Evansville Courier and Press regarding appointment of a “…school chief…” “…after Ritz’s time over…” in the Oct, 26, 2013 edition.

I would like to comment that the real problem here is NOT a Republican or Democratic problem regarding elections. It is, instead, a governor who is indebted to the tea party. The tea party has provided us with elected officials who do not know how to reasonably negotiate as elected officials with even their own party, let alone the other political party. Their “…my way or the highway…” style is self-serving and oppressive. It is the stuff of dictators and anarchists, and it deprives the electorate of a voice in government.

In addition, doing as the editorial in question suggests, opens Indiana to the same problem that Florida is now experiencing. Tony Bennett has resigned and its educational program has at best been disrupted and at worse has been disgraced.
