When the Local reporters go to city council and fiscal court meetings, more often than not, we are the only citizens there. And I honestly feel as though it is the job of the newspaper to attend these meetings and let our readers know what’s going on. We’re happy to serve our readership in that capacity.
Sometimes, though, I wish citizens would take more interest in local government. I certainly don’t expect folks to attend all those monthly meetings, but there is one simple thing people can do to take part in their local government – VOTE.
