Complacency is wrong approach to gov’t

Itake great exception to the letter to the editor from Rod Kulp, “Leave Sewerage AuthorityAs Is,” that appeared in the April 1 issue of the Sentinel.

His quoting of the old adage “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” as a reason not to seek greater efficiencies in a governmental body is terribly misguided and leaves me questioning the validity of the rest of his letter.

The fiscal crisis facing municipalities and states alike demands that everything be re-evaluated and viewed with a “fix-it” eye. Imagine the world we would live in if the great leaders and innovators of our time had left things that appeared functioning “as is.”

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” is complacency at its worst and has no place in government.
