Letter: Don't waste your time

To the Editor:

If you ever decide to go to a public hearing, be prepared to sit down, sign in and then listen to a panel of experts tell you what they decided on the issue before you even entered the building.

You will be able to ask a question, but if you have an opinion, you will be asked to sit down. Your job as a taxpayer is to just pay your taxes so the panel can get paid to make up your mind for you.

You will be seen, but they won’t let you be heard. What a joke a public hearing is.

Stay home; don’t waste your time. We did.
