Great letter to the editor from Ben McIntee.

Ben says "Jeff Bowser, Chris Grant, Joan Laursen and the cabinet must live on a different planet than the rest of us. "

Totally agree.

What we have now is the fox guarding the hen house. Two of "those foxes" terms are up in 2014. We need to make sure some concerned residents run for those seats. Once we replace one or both of the foxes with somebody from this planet,Jamie and Valerie will have the extra vote(s) needed to return the control of the district back to the residents. Until then, the district will do whatever they want, no matter what the residents think. Should the current fox control try to vote on additional administrator contracts like this, we need to start a recall process. I am afraid that the foxes will be approving very lucrative contracts for their friends before they leave office, including clauses that cost the taxpayers a lot of money to fix.
