    Federal and State Governments typically are a series checks and balances. Who does the MDC answer to? Are the head honchos appointed? If so, by whom?

    Here is a link that explains about the commission. Within that page click the link by "Authority". The commission selects the director. Dont really know much more on how it is structured, who they report to, etc.

    And whatever would happen, we don't want them to answer to the elected officials. But there should be a way for the masses to be heard.

    By the way things have been going the past couple of years it's pretty clear they answer to nobody. If they have an agenda up their sleeves it's going to pass, and it will be doctored up and reworded to suit the masses

    I thought the Commission members were appointed by the Governor, but I'm not sure.
