Well, I don’t like the way an issue went, so it’s time to change our whole form of governance, because I don’t have the votes to replace city council members. That, it a nutshell (pun intended) is what these rabble rousers want. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds….. They will be the first to argue that the United States is a Republic, not a democracy, but somehow make the mental leap that representative democracy doesn’t work at the city level. Win the elections on the merits of your ideas and candidates rather than try to undo a system that is working quite well.

For or against it – it’s too bad the Editor of the Bulletin decided to quickly publish the WHOLE petition – names, addresses, and especially signatures for the whole world to see. Great for identity theft! Of course, he back-tracked and blackened much of the page – probably not in time though. People who wants to steal someone’s identity most likely would not drive up to city hall, ask to see the sheets and make copies! This was SO MUCH easier. I wonder, too, whether the city had to pay to have it run or if the paper did it ‘free of charge’? Also, wonder if the editor checked to see if it was correct? Thanks so much for posting everyone’s signature – just copy & paste!
