Greetings Mayor Pagano

Public letter to the current Mayor of St. Peters, MO

I've been looking at your actions and writing about them.

I intend to write much more. I also intend to see that you are removed from office as soon as possible. You are a threat to the Democracy of this country. You have already taken it too far. If you would have read the constitution of your state you would have seen that at no point, ever, are the citizens of the State of Missouri ever relieved of their power. You looked at Missouri Revised Statutes -- Chapter 71 Provisions Relative to All Cities and Towns  
It would have been advisable to begin at Chapter 1

State Constitution Challenge


I can't believe I actually thought Missouri's Constitution was a bit soft last night. I've read over its protections from its own government several times now and ... wow. I even posted Washington's as a comparison. -- no comparison.

Which gave me an Idea. I'm going to make a tour of the State Constitutions, and look at their individual protection measures from the Legislation of the State. Citizen Protection from Government Dictatorship are built-in measures most of the state's have in their State Rights. I am told by a fairly reliable source that every state has this written into the constitution, and that it was one of the things every state had to have. Like each state had to have a Blaine Law.

Missouri Is More Interesting than I Believed
Except for the stupid people.

City officials in St. Charles, Missouri seek to invalidate the decision of three out of four residents who voted to ban red light cameras.
St Charles courthouse. Three towns in Missouri joined together to sue the the residents of St. Charles who voted to ban red light cameras. St. Peters, Lake Saint Louis and O'Fallon are asking a county circuit court judge to overturn the charter amendment banning automated enforcement adopted in November with the support of 73 percent of voters. City leaders argue that the 69,469 residents who voted for the measure had no business limiting the right of local politicians to use automated ticketing machines.
"The charter amendment invades the legislative jurisdiction of cities in contravention of state policy, and conflicts with the authority specifically delegated to cities by the state to address their specific needs including traffic and enforcement of traffic regulations," attorney Matthew J. Fairless wrote in the cities' complaint.
The suit alleges the charter amendment will result in "a loss of revenue" and, therefore, each of the cities has standing to sue. The cities also argue that the Missouri General Assembly gave each city government "exclusive control over all streets, alleys, avenues and public highways within the limits of such city" so that the people who live in the county have no say in the decisions made by political leaders.
