Looks like those of us who are tired of having our voices squeezed out by those on the far left and far right will have to wait to hear from the Arizona Supreme Court on whether “we the people” will get to vote on a historic measure that could end the partisan gridlock and dysfunction that plagues our government. Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Mark Brain issued an injunction last week to keep the Open Government initiative off the November ballot. Looks like a small but artful minority has figured out a way to potect the status quo and undermine democracy. It was a bad week for good government.
