Argument 168
Arg 168 Committee members: city residents only-o

The following is a letter that recently appeared in the Oak City Gazette, a local newspaper.

The primary function of the Committee for a Better Oak City is to advise the city government on how to make the best use of the city's limited budget.However, at some of our recent meetings we failed to make important decisions because of the foolish objections raised by committee members who are not even residents of Oak City.People who work in Oak City but who live elsewhere cannot fully understand the business and politics of the city.After all, only Oak City residents pay city taxes, and therefore only residents understand how that money could best be used to improve the city.We recommend, then, that the Committee for a Better Oak City vote to restrict its membership to city residents only.We predict that, without the interference of non-residents, the committee will be able to make Oak City a better place in which to live and work.

Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the recommendation is likely to have the predicted result. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the recommendation.


G1: The primary function of the Committee for a Better Oak City is to advise the city government on how to make the best use of the city's limited budget.


G2: However, at some of our recent meetings we failed to make important decisions


C1: because of the foolish objections raised by committee members who are not even residents of Oak City.

C2: People who work in Oak City but who live elsewhere cannot fully understand the business and politics of the city.

G3: After all, only Oak City residents pay city taxes,

C3: and therefore only residents understand how that money could best be used to improve the city.

C4: We recommend, then, that the Committee for a Better Oak City vote to restrict its membership to city residents only.

C5:We predict that, without the interference of non-residents, the committee will be able to make Oak City a better place in which to live and work.


A1 (G1, C1, C5): The objections are foolish and without such objections the city would be a better place.

A2 (C2): People who are residents do not understand the business and politics of the city and cannot usefully participate in the decision-making.

A3 (G3, C3) : The city residents who pay city taxes necessarily understand how the money should be used and can make the right decisions.


are the objections raised by non-resident members foolish and whether the failure to make decisions was bad for the city
- perhaps the authors of the letters are biased or their interests were negatively influenced by the objections
- maybe the non-resident committee memberss objection was acutally beneficial for the city in the long term
- maybe postponing the decision was not necessarily a bad thing (more thorough discussion could be helpful)

why the exp of living in the city was important for understanding the business or politics of the city
- maybe citys business and politics are quite similar to other cities and some general principle and research methods can be usefully applied to understand (if the non-resident members are experienced in these principles and methods, then )
- or maybe by reading about the documents and reports from consulting firms can help people to understand the business and politics of the city adequately (then no need to live there)
- perhaps not living there could help develop fresh perspective that can be useful

whether the resident members are competent and whether other issues need to be fixed to make the city a better place
- maybe the current resident members and the future resident members that will replace the non-residents are corrupted or ill-informed
- perhaps the real problem with the city is that the tax code should be reformed to generate more tax revenue
