As a whole, is the County Government a valuable asset to the community of Firestone?
As a whole, are the members of the County Government qualified enough to perform their jobs?
If the people have complaints about the House, DM me via Discord or message any other Representative. We are willing to listen to the people of Firestone. You just have to reach out.
I understand there is a petition to dissolve county government with approximately 28 unique supports, however, in order to fully understand what everyone wants, both sides must be lobbying for the creation of a fair bill. That’s why in the real world, it is important to call your Representatives, so that your voice can be heard.
Petition: A Petition to Abolish the Stapleton County Government
According to the polls (at the time of this post,) only 52% of people want the county abolished; however, 79% of people say that the Council does not listen to them. This is a staffing problem, not a government problem.

I am for shutting down the County, only if it can resurface under a new administration. The total abolition of the county government is too radical of an idea, and we must take into consideration what we are bringing to the table.
We are losing a fundamental piece in the political field that has managed the SCSO and the SCFD.
We are giving more power to the State and monopolizing decision-making to the State.
Using the same logic of just having one legislative body, one executive body and one judicial body, we can further apply the same principals to other aspects of the community, such as our police force. (E.g., combining the SCSO and FSP into one body to streamline vital decisions, combining the State Senate and House, etc.)
tl;dr This is not an issue of the government itself, it is an issue of the people who run it. There must be reform brought upon the County to prevent loopholes and general idiocy. The dissolution of the county is too extreme of an option as of now.
This is just my opinion, I’d like to hear what others have to think. Please keep it civil.
