My theory is that Ambrose has never worked in the private sector only knows funding via taxpayers or donation. He doesn't understand how the business sector works and thinks the government is going to save us. We don't need an "alternative to involvement of political parties in local affairs". We need to get everyone working together - citizens, elected officials and business people - in a democratic process. In the final analysis we are all one community. But apparently Ambrose would rather sit in his office paid for by someone else's nickel and write drivel rather than deal with reality. A waste of time indeed, IMO.
