To the editor:
I have read that many people are upset with the City Commission and the County Commission. The complaints range from a Wal-Mart being let loose in west Lawrence, the destruction of prime farm land in North Lawrence, a South Lawrence Trafficway through wetlands ignoring our Indian neighbors' concerns, giving away tax dollars to a company that the mayor has a stake in and then a new tax that is supposed to be for existing infrastructure but will be used to pay for pet projects for special interest groups.
Probably the most frustrating part is they ignore the public outcry because they can. If we as a community continue to vote at 14 percent of the registered voters, they can do as they please, and they know it.
