Consent of the Governed

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..."
-The Declaration of Independence

"As long as I'm the Director we will not make decisions by public consent"

-Ray McGury, Executive Director, Naperville Park District

Welcome to the wrong side of history, Ray. May your reign be short.
