Blog reader George Krutz, III suggests that elected officials should know what they are signing on for when they run for office:
On subject: I am of the opinion that all public officials should attend necessary meetings in person. Life’s happenstance certainly precludes one sometimes from attending. But that happens in the private and public sector. And at that point, one would simply be absent.
If you cant do the time (make it to meetings)
Don’t do the crime (volunteer for or run for office)
What do you think? Should it be easier for government bodies to meet electronically? Join the discussion.
