“They believe local gov’ts and local school boards take away liberties just like the federal gov’t”

From a Cap Times article entitled, “Rep. Chris Taylor checks out another ALEC conference“:

“They’ve declared war on local control. What I heard was much more blatant than what I’ve heard in the past,” Taylor said. “They believe local governments and local school boards take away liberties just like the federal government.”

Senator Tiffany attempted to remove local control over high capacity wells/frac sand mines/roads/more.

The legislature most recently toyed with removing local school board control and handing it to corporations under the heading of “accountability“.

I KNOW this. You KNOW this.

Yet to read it like this – it still has the power to appall.
This is contempt for democracy.
