To the Editor:
Ms Rosekrans’ key argument, “How do we ask a board of seven individuals to draft up binding, unambiguous legislation, that satisfies all parties, when in fact, all the state’s legal resources have been unable to do that very thing?” is misleading for two reasons.
She has cast the issue as a dilemma, omitting a third possibility, which is democratic compromise. No legislation satisfies all parties; therefore her standard is set unreasonably high, since the goal in a democracy is to satisfy most parties.
Based on the more reasonable standard of satisfying most people, the State appears to have been successful in meeting the objective. Therefore, the Lyons BOT should be able to accomplish the same goal by simply adopting the State’s provisions.
