Draining the democratic process
There were many new members along with some familiar faces. There was much discussion about all the activity this past year. Many on the committee were quite satisfied with the progress of saving our Sparta.
Rep. Jim Fannin, D-Jonesboro, informed the commission members of the progress of his legislation. But I would not call Fannin’s work “progress.” What Fannin’s legislation has done, in fact, is dictate his desires and “concerns” in spite of public opinion in north Louisiana. Fannin has performed a frontal lobotomy on Sparta’s democratic mindset without anesthesia.
