I note that in your Jan. 14 edition, when referring to the Richmond County special grand jury Sen. Charles Walker, D-Augusta, stated, "They are not elected officials and they should not be making recommendations on what type of government we have."
It is apparent Sen. Walker believes that it is none of the people's business in determining the effectiveness of our local government.
Sen. Walker's view translates to: Who needs government of the people, by the people, and for the people when we have elected officials (presumably this includes Sen. Walker) to show uninformed citizens the way?
Judging from the commission's negative reaction to the grand jury report, the report must have been right on target.
To the grand jury I say "Well done."
