Why we elect people

Dear Editor:I’m going to write about my agreement with Andy Modell, from Monday’s paper. I will be sure to read it all before I push send. But, neighbors, we keep putting these people in office so we don’t have to think about every dollar we spend together. Like a divorcing couple, I’d like to spend my own money on my own things and let the city councilmen and women and the county commissioners spend their time and effort debating our traffic ebb and flow and our housing ways and means.I want to think about surfing the Pacific coast of Baja, or convincing one of the new women to have some kids. Now, Toni, if you want to convince your friends not to date me, cool. Otherwise, sit down and shut up, like me and Andy and the Ukrainians.Jimmy IbbotsonWoody Creek
