You've got to be kidding! "City takes case to court: Order sought to force three Council members to …" (News Leader, July 22). I thought that the reason we have different branches of government here in the U.S. was to balance power. Can you imagine the President of the United States wanting something that Congress wouldn't approve and court action being instituted "to force" Congress? What has happened to the government of Macedonia? The issue is about payment of salary to Finance Director Scott Svab. May I remind readers that Mr. Svab was consulted and provided financial advisorship when the Macedonia budget for 2015 was drafted?

How about each branch of government work their own job and stop trying to run a dictatorship?
