    My question to Ms. Basham is simply this, "Why didn't you release a press statement on January 1 informing everyone that voter registration cards would not be mailed until district boundary disputes are resolved?" The best way to stop false rumors and misinformation is to be proactive. If you want to reduce phones "ringing off the hook" try being more forthcoming with important information. Remember, you work for the taxpayers, we do not work for you. Patience may be a virtue, but keeping citizens in the dark seems to be a common government vice.

    Thank you for the update. People do have a tendency to over react before taking all of the facts into consideration. Ms. Basham is an appointed official whose office is staffed with knowledgable personnel. There are always days when the telephone is ringing off the hook but the calls are always answered in a polite professional manner. The majority of the public wanted districting lines reviewed and now it's a state-wide issue. Patience is a virtue.
