Warren Reports

Text by Warren Gubler, Vice Mayor

Citizen Participation

The Visalia City Council makes a lot of routine decisions on behalf of our community. On occasion, however, an individual or neighborhood in the city gets involved. We try to balance their input with staff reports and our own research. Similar to a judge in court, we try to render our final decision based upon the facts and merits, not upon which side has the most in attendance at a council meeting.

Famous atheistic philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach maintained that belief in God was merely a projection of the human fear of death upon the heavens. In other words, Feuerbach said we fear death so much that we “invent” a God who promises us eternal life, thereby creating a coping mechanism that relieves our fears.
