Administrator a temporary fix

Re: Democracy lacking in Coast local government

Look, we all know that the current administration is temporary. Let’s not get into a weeping session about the loss of democratic rights. Administration is a legal process that entities who are facing bankruptcy go through.

They are run by an administrator while the directors are stood aside. Just because the CC Council has elected councilors rather than directors does not alter the fact or the process.

The Administrator is not a dictator, above the law or self-serving. He/she operates within legal rules and constraints.
For goodness sake, just wait until the situation is under control, then we can get back to the possibility of another bunch of dysfunctional chaotic democratically elected leaders. Hopefully, we will have learned from the last tilt at democracy.
