Woodinville City Council needs humor

Woodinville City Council Occasionally I read a letter to the editor which objects to something that the Woodinville City Council has done. And sometimes writers write that Council members are voted into office implying that they should be voted out of office.
   It's a fair statement. I lived in Woodinville in the late '60s and early '70s, and still own property in the city. I have been to many City Council meetings over the years, sometimes to 11 p.m., sometimes several times a week. I have always thought that if I were a Council member, or Mayor, or Deputy Mayor, that I would do things differently.
   My big criticism is that there are not enough jokes. But then again, the Woodinville City Council is not elected and paid to do Jay Leno's job.
   Woodinville City Council members work hard for the welfare of the people of Woodinville. Lately, there are differences among Council members on procedural issues. These differences have not affected the ability of the Woodinville City Council to study, and to make decisions on a myriad of issues affecting the City of Woodinville.
   High grades from here.
