Gov. Ritter’s executive order
However, Gov. Bill Ritter chose to circumvent this system and govern via executive order (“Guv backs state unions,” Nov. 3).
We elect our state legislators and governor with the expectation they adhere to this brilliant system. Yes, the governor has the authority to issue such a document, nevertheless it should be used in very rare circumstances, such as emergencies, not to pander to the union bosses.
