Contrast those soaring words carved into the wall of our nation’s Lincoln Memorial to a remark by Fluvanna Supervisors’ Chairman Mozell Booker during a supervisors’ meeting Aug. 6:
“Why do we make our rules and ordinances if we are just going to listen to the people?” (As reported in Fluvanna Review for August 14-20, 2014.)
Booker’s comment was shocking on its face. Even worse, though, she asked this question by way of explaining why she voted for an exception to one of the ordinances she mentioned. That’s right. She did not vote for the ordinance. She voted for the exception.
