Council, let residents have their way

Is the city of West Linn governed by, for and with the will of the people? The common good is not represented in the process of deliberation by your (our) counsel.

It matters not about access, noise, etc., as these are very local concerns. What matters is the will of the people of all West Linn. There is a time-tested, valid means of learning collective will: the vote!

Only a few could attend the meeting — we have young children, work long hours and have other pressing responsibilities.

Not only are we all left out of these meetings, but our concerns are ignored. Is this a democratic way?

We live here, work here and really care. If you care, please let us (we, all the people) have our way.

Patrick Maharg, M.D.
