Some fossils were uncovered today on the steps of city hall. Former councilmembers George Arthur, Clifford Bell, and David Collins showed up to grandstand and try to incite racial politics. They were joined by Mr. Insignificant himself: Frank Messiah, President of the local chapter of the NAACP. The group claims the Ellicott district is not being represented while the interviewing process is taking place for a new councilmember.
Where was there outrage when Brian Davis was missing meetings and running the district like a criminal enterprise? How come they weren't worried about their representation then? Arthur and the rest of this group represent 100 years of ineffectiveness in local government. Theirs is the mindset that we need government to run our lives and provide for us. Sorry. But we need less government. This protest is just an attempt for these half dozen people to get their names in the paper. Where was the outrage when the barbershops got tens of thousands of dollars from Byron Brown, or is that the "representation"they so badly miss?
