Isn't it interesting the politicians are lamenting about the 60 percent provision on ballot measure 4 and 5. Too much control in the hands of only 40 percent of the voters. If a project is really necessary or an increase in taxation is really necessary, I am confident the voters will respond favorably.
The call for more money is constant by government when are we the people going to get a raise?
I find it interesting that government at all levels, city, school, borough, state, regional and finally federal cannot possibly do with less money but when they get a raise, we the paying public get an income cut.
Vote "yes" on 4 and 5 ballot measures. You are finally empowered to tell government to tighten their belt for a change.
