Sandifer & Constance Need A Civics Lesson

First, please read (or re-read) my post immediately below dated March 27, 2019.

It is my firm belief that both council members Mickey Sandifer (15 years on the council) and Lindsey Constance (an educator by profession) need an updated civics lesson. 

So, to help these two folks the following items are submitted:  the first page of the monthly report as published by the city and is available to view on line.  It is the city's organization chart.  Please note who sits on the top level of the hierarchy.  Click on the image to see a larger view.

Next is something that I have had to remind various council members of from time to time.  It is section 3 of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the State of Kansas (highlighting and bold by me for effect):
§ 3. Right of peaceable assembly; petition. The people have the right to assemble, in a peaceable manner, to consult for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to petition the government, or any department thereof, for the redress of grievances.
