Agreed. At the last ballot we had what 3-4 charter changes. Focus in on what really matters here in Lakewood, Does anyone remember or care what the last one's really did? Or is it all just busy work??? Do something constructive to Lakewood for once. City Council, leave the busy work at home where it belongs.
