Council should do its real work

By
From page A10 | October 08, 2013 |

I am so relieved that saner minds, sort of, prevailed in our recent fluoridation debacle. What troubled me most about this whole issue was the fact that we were even going down that path in the first place.

Since when does providing health care for the masses come under the purview of the city of Davis and its taxpayers? Seems to me that task has come under the auspices of the state and federal departments of Health and Human Services — which, by the way, my hard-earned tax dollars already support.

I never cease to be amazed at what our local batch of progressives want to stick their noses into. Next I suppose I will be reading about attempts by this City Council and any one of its copious busy-body commissions to establish a Department of Defense so that we can “protect the children” from all that they perceive as evil. And then perhaps a Department of Transportation to further control, regulate and tax traffic flowing in and around our city — including all aircraft flying overhead. Where would it end?

Though I suppose if we had real issues to deal with, ones that actually were the responsibility of said City Council to manage — like parking, increasing the tax base, fixing the miserable streets, etc. — they wouldn’t be charging off on these inappropriate tangents.
