Carol, do we really need another committee? The Auburns City website lists at least 15 committees already. How about getting some people together for a little community activism to abolish some of these committees. We elect a city council every two years to conduct the affairs of the taxpayer. It is about time they step up to the plate and make decisions without years of committee meetings.
The comedian Fred Allen said; "A committee is a group of the unprepared, appointed by the unwilling to do the unnecessary."
He may have been joking, but there is a lot to be said about that statement.
Al, government intervention into anything always drives cost up.
Claire, the tea Party movement is not exclusive to Republicans.
