Before the meeting, Salvesen sent a letter to fellow Supervisors, suggesting amendments to the Constitution that include term limits; election of U.S. Senators by the state legislatures instead of by popular vote; limits on spending and taxation; state power to veto a federal statute; and voter ID.
Mark Tanczos told Salvesen that, before signing on to the proposal, he'd want to know what residents think.
Chairman John N. Diacogiannis was a little more blunt. "I'm not convinced this is a Township-related business," he reasoned. "It's the people's business."
"What business are we in?" retorted Salvesen.
Glenn Walbert was also skeptical, telling Salvesen that "[i]t's not appropriate for our Board to take an action of that kind."
"If that's the Board's desire, I'll go solo," answered the 30-year Supervisor.
