Issuing ultimatums a poor way to lead

We were disappointed this week at the political strong-arm tactics and lack of leadership shown by high-ranking members of the state Senate, namely Majority Leader Jim Denning and President Susan Wagle.

Denning and Wagle temporarily stopped progress toward a school funding solution when they delivered an ultimatum to their colleagues: No debate on education funding until you approve a constitutional amendment that would eliminate the courts from the school funding equation.

We were shocked that the Senate leadership would stoop to such dictatorial tactics. Members of the Senate were shocked, as well. And it wasn’t a partisan matter.
