Dear City Council members: What part of representative government do
you not understand? (See "Voters said yes but council says no" in the
March 13 Chieftain .)

Yes, leaders should lead. But in a representative government, when the
people express their wishes on an issue, the job of leaders is to
fulfill the desires of the people.

You four council members who are refusing to abide by the votes of the
people should reconsider your roles as representatives. If you find
that your personal ethics do not allow you to abide by the wishes of
the voters, you should then resign and allow more capable citizens to
do the job.
