Civic duty

Sorry Mayor Smith, but you can't get out of jury duty. Not that you don't deserve to - we very much appreciate your civic pariticpation, but the jury process is fairly set. He's right that they will probably let him go once he goes down there, but it is good to see that he is not above doing what he is supposed to do and let the process work.

In this day and age, elitism has crept into our elected officials (see President Obama), and they tend to forget that they are elected by the people and should live to the same standards as everyone else. Perhaps the President wouldn't be facing such mounting criticism if he followed the lead of local leaders. We also think that he would have been wise to follow Mesa's lead on balancing the budget instead of going down the road of overspending.
