As citizens of our country, we have the right to complain about the things we do not like. We have the responsibility, however, to take positive action to improve what we feel is lacking. A basic problem of all government, identified by a Los Alamos citizen in 1959, is “the prevention of any one interest from gaining complete control at the expense of others.” The criticism was not about the presence of special interests, which can benefit society greatly, but about lack of control of those interests in government by government. We see this problem at federal, state and local levels.
In Los Alamos we have multitudes of ideas, needs and criticisms for government. We lack the means, however, to channel input into actions which can be approved by a majority of citizens by way of a vote, our voice in local government.
Many of you have heard of a newly formed organization, the Los Alamos Governmental Review Initiative (LAGRI), and of the petitions for charter amendment we initiated recently. The following is a brief history of our government and LAGRI, and a summary of the content of our proposed charter amendments.
