Why is it always "The county endorses..."; "The county approved..." Who voted for / against any plan / proposal? There is one judge-executive - Mike Buchanan, but there are also 6 elected district magistrates. Why do we never see their names / positions on these issues? Are they all a rubber stamp for Buchanan or do they represent the people of their district?
Doug Gorman - 1st District - isn't he the same Doug Gorman who is the Downtown Economic Development Authority Chairman? hmmmm.... interesting, no?
Tom Lawrence - 2nd District
Tony Payne - 3rd District
Rex McWhorter - 4th District
Mark Young - 5th District
Darrell Traughber - 6th District

How do these guys vote; what is their perspective; how are they representing the best interest of the people of their districts?
