Ready For A Part Time Legislature?
"California would gain much, and lose virtually nothing by disenfranchising our full time legislature and replacing it with part time citizen-legislators. It would be significantly less expensive. It could lead to the extinction of a class of privilege. Most importantly a return to a part time legislature would probably result in legislative representatives who actually represent their constituents instead of their own special interests. The added bonus is that the current variety of myopic, petty power addicted pols would have less time, incentive, and money to do further harm to we the people."
This is from, hold on to your bling, a 1998 article, written by Geoff Metcalf the Editor of CalNews.com.
He's a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the United States Army Reserves, and was at one time a nationally syndicated radio talk show host based in Washington, D.C.
Note how the article mentions Tony, the Snake, Villar's distaste of a part time legislature back when he was a mere speaker and not the great genius mayor AKA-throbbing weasel, he is today.
"The cost to maintain the royal duchies of legislators is about $200-million per year NOT COUNTING PENSIONS."
(these are 1998 figures-it's way more now)
