Advice ignored on hunting

So let me get this absolutely straight. The county commissioners:

1) Ask the public works and parks departments to study and provide recommendations as to the proper use of the county owned properties as it relates to hunting -- and when those recommendations do not “lock step” with your personal objectives you ignore the recommendations!

2) You hold public hearings as to proposed changes to the current ordinances that would allow hunting on lands that are not currently zoned to to allow hunting - and when that public input overwhelmingly does not “lock step” with your personal objectives you continue to ignore the increasing evidence and sentiment against your position!

3) You request input from your county officials associated with law enforcement and health and when those recommendations also do not “lock step” with your personal objectives you not only argue with them openly in session but —  you continue to choose to ignore the overwhelming evidence from every corridor against your position!

Well now let’s see if we can accurately define tyranny!
