A matter of trust (October 11, 2016)

To me, it is no longer an issue as to the fate of Apple Valley Town Council’s efforts to take over Liberty Utilities, it is a matter of trust.

If our elected officials don’t trust the people who elected them (who will get the bill for any takeover of the water company) to make the right decision, it’s time to replace them.

If our elected officials don’t trust us, then we have no reason to trust them and indeed we have serious reason to question their real motivation for the takeover.

Elections are just a few weeks away and I suggest it’s time to break up the good old folks voting block and give some new talent an opportunity to represent the will of the people.

Anyone but the incumbents.

Dean Schepis, Apple Valley
