“Democracy” at Work

AJC

The Gwinnett County Commission will vote today to spend another $19 million on its new baseball stadium without debate or public discussion.

At its morning work session today, the commission voted to add the payment to its “consent agenda,” a package of issues voted on with a single vote and no discussion at its afternoon business session. That meeting happens at 2 p.m.

Emphasis added.

    What’s the process for recall elections in Gwinnett County?  Sounds as if the mechanism design for the County is broken.
