People Often Bypass Our Public Involvement Process, and Go Straight to the Political Decision-Makers which is a phenomenon that you can see happening at every level of government.

Although it’s not necessarily a disaster, you should not ignore it. After all, if your outreach efforts are effective, people shouldn’t need the need to end-run the professionals. If it gets bad enough, this can pretty much undermine your whole public involvement effort. That’s why we feel you need to do what you can to prevent it before it starts. And – if it’s to late to prevent it – you need to take steps to deal with it.
