Bruce Broussard on Government Reform


Good government follows clearly outlined public procedures

Parking lot politics is not good politics. Sometimes the result may seem to produce innovation, but it robs the citizens of the right to participate in the democratic process. Same-sex marriage policy, for example, while an important issue to many Oregonians, was `railroaded' past the people of Multnomah Country without the benefit of open, democratic debate and decision-making. It creates the unfortunate situation in which the value of the policies in question don't get addressed and must take second place to whims of those currently in positions of power. It is not a right use of the people's trust. Good Government is government that follows the public procedures clearly outlined in the laws that govern our land.
