Was a 'no' vote big government intrusion?

Five hundred years ago, Niccolo Machiavelli wrote a book titled "The Prince." One phrase from that text that remains a paradox today is "the end justifies the means."

In other words, an action can be justified by the intended outcome rather than the action itself.

On Wednesday, March 13, five members of the Lehigh County Board of Commissioners exercised the political equivalent of this maxim.

In doing so, they not only diminished the integrity of our office, but also increased the uncertainty of the future cost of water and wastewater treatment in Lehigh County.
