Taxation without representation

For those playing at home, that’s an acknowledgement from the N.C. Attorney general that there will in fact be no one elected to the District 6 seat or the at-large seat until 2014 — which means almost 43,000 Guilford County voters, an eighth of the county, will be without representation on the board of commissioners.

If there is a better illustration of politicians putting politics over the people they purport to represent, I’d like to hear it.
