Letter: City Council members should find a balance
There is a difference between obstructionism and caution.
There is a difference between change and improvement.
There is a difference between “this is the way we’ve always done it” and “this is a very effective way which works.”
Can we agree that the fresh face of our new City Council should find a balance between doing business as usual and throwing out the baby with the bathwater?
I believe it can be done. And that is why each council member was elected, not just to leave a personal mark on the city, but to work together to do what he or she was elected to do: plan and give direction to all facets of the workings of the city of Salisbury.
New ideas? Absolutely. Voice of experience? Definitely. And this is why we have elected you to represent us.
So we encourage you to keep ego out of the deliberations. Work out a respect for each other’s skills and wisdom. After that, Salisbury will surely benefit from a council which has thoroughly weighed the issues and is then ready to listen to the input from us, the citizens who elected you to lead.
