Letter to the Editor: Road to good government is not paved with lawsuits

Ah, yes, Mr. Wright, we all have choices in life. I choose Incline Village and you choose Crystal Bay. If either of us does not like what we see in our respective locations, we can move, i.e. choose another spot to live the same way you select grocery stores or cable service.

Chief Justice Roberts just told all of us what we should do if we don’t like something our leaders are doing: vote. No, he did not say file lawsuits, fill the paper with angry letters casting blame everywhere, or running for election and then calling the election results unfair.

Thus, it would seem that we should not run to courtroom and throw mud and insult those trying to accomplish things. We all should study the candidates for IVGID and their opinions and then vote for those who best represent our views.

Washoe County now knows that wild spending is no longer in the cards. IVGID knows that residents will not just lay back and let the fees rise. The message has been sent. Now let’s vote for the best trustees to implement our wishes and then follow their actions at each meeting — respectfully, but with vigilance.

By the way ... I did not wish for higher taxes, but I recognize that the road to good government is not paved with lawsuits and angry diatribes, especially in our small town. We have full access to all our IVGID trustees and employees.

The election this November will help them focus more than any sideline antics you and Mr. Katz may wish to present. Vote and follow the instructions of the Chief Justice. A vote is the best way to express your view.

Paul Smith
