It is your government. It is okay to own it.

The owner's manual is
The Constitution

But to use it, we have to understand it.

We study Governance (the use of power) rather than Politics (gaining power).

Starting out this year, a number of folks (self included) thought it would be a good idea to learn our LOCAL government by studying the Josephine County Charter.

This week, after a brief review, we pick up at section 12.1 Emergency Board Meetings.

From time to time, as we go through the charter, the lady who chaired the committee that hammered out the details of the charter, will be in attendance. She will give us background and intent that surpasses a mere reading of the charter.

The intention is to go through our county charter, just as we do the US Constitution, word-by-word and section-by-section so we will know how our county government is SUPPOSED to work.

It is your county government. It is okay to own it.

The owner's manual is The Charter.
