Pay no attention to the people behind the curtain

La Muerte de la Revolucion?

After Wigderson worked so hard, it may all be for naught:
A petition drive aiming to cut the Waukesha County Board to 11 members will not succeed in blocking board action tonight on an alternative plan, the chief organizer said today. [. . .]

Normally, the group would have until mid-May to complete its petition drive seeking a binding countywide referendum on changing the 35-member board to 11 members. But because state law limits how often such a change can take place, petitioners were racing to finish before tonight's scheduled County Board vote tonight on downsizing the board to 25 members.

If the board approves that plan - or any other change - the petition drive becomes a moot point.
Funny how those duly elected representatives will thwart the will of the people every time . . . As Kent Brockman would say, "I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Democracy just doesn't work."

Update: La revolucion es muerte.
