Rep. Brown is to be applauded for attempting to reintroduce proper perspective into the legislature. Proper perspective illustrates the legislature as a body of servants put on a sacred errand to enact laws that are beneficial to the state and fair to its citizens. By the vote of the people these select few are chosen and entrusted to act on behalf of the people without the people having to watch their every move. When it is discovered that the chosen servants have voted themselves a benefit which cannot be provided to the citizens as a whole, perspective is twisted and the people’s trust is violated. Follow Rep. Brown’s lead and fix it, ye public servants of the people, and regain our trust.
