Response to the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC)
Martin Wheeler would like to thank the citizens of the State of Washington for being interested and involved in transparency. Government is not truly for the people or by the people unless they are involved. Our founding fathers wrote our constitution with the prayer the citizens would stay involved. The job of the PDC is to provide a platform to allow interested citizens to declare their concerns, knowing they will be heard. This is transparency.
We all need to know we are being heard, which is one of the reasons for this campaign. After all, government is for the people to have a place to bring their concerns. In the campaign stage these concerns are adjudicated by the PDC. If there is something that needs to be addressed, it is their job to facilitate the needed change(s).
Martin L. “Iceman” Wheeler and his staff are happy to clarify what is being questioned and to address it, and are grateful for the interest expressed. This action requires involvement in the governing process.
If we don’t get involved, we allow anyone desiring to take advantage of the citizens of the State of Washington, to do just that. Take advantage.
Voting is the bottom step of involvement. There are those that don’t even do that. There are many different reasons for not voting. Apathy is a killer of transparency. If we don’t get involved, we are asking to be over taxed and covered with choking regulations. Rules, regulations, policies, and procedures govern our daily lives. They set boundaries to where we should not want to go. They are, if done correctly, what makes society a good place to live, work and raise families. This benefits everyone in the society. Involvement ensures the government does not become repressive and arduous!
