Branson Alderman Not So Keen on Democratic Process

In typical fashion, some of Branson politicians reneged on their commitment to open government yesterday by refusing to address Branson citizens in an open debate slated Thursday in downtown Branson.

Apparently, some Branson Politicians prefer smoky back rooms - (smoke free here) - which is how the current campaigns are being caucused - away from places accountability and integrity are required.

The candidates invited to the forum were from Branson Ward II- the district I happen to vote in. Platforms, issues and stances on the future of Branson have evaded the campaigns to date in place of cult of personality endorsements.
