Enough Blame To Go Around

Enough Blame to Go Around!  When Barbara Frush proposed legislation to recall elected officials IF charged with a crime -- it seemed like a good idea at the time.  After all, former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson and his wife, Leslie had just been arrested from their home and his wife Leslie was about to take her seat on the County Council and in fact did take that seat.  Then WHY would no one come to speak in favor of this legislation?  Maybe -- because the voters did not know WHEN this legislation was scheduled to come up.  It's not enough for one group in one part of the County to speak up -- this was an ENTIRE Prince George's County issue.  Concerned Prince Georgians are pretty well read -- and we had not heard anything about the status of this legislation -- until it was too late.  Yes -- we the voters are at fault for being apathetic -- but the civic association should have reached out to other civic associations in the County so that other Concerned Prince Georgians could have had an opportunity to participate fully in the process.  Yes -- It's Enough Blame To Go Around!
