LETTER | The Houghton Community Council is an Anachronism

Dear Kirkland Views:

I served on the Houghton Community Council and the Kirkland City Council for a number of years. For a long time I have believed that the HCC is an anachronism.

My wife and I have been citizens of Houghton for just over 37 years. It is time to stop this undemocratic favoritism given to the citizens of Houghton. 

The essence of democracy is one person one vote. Let's get on with the proposal to abolish the Houghton Community Council.

I applaud my elected representatives for stepping forward on this issue.
