I would like to clarify a letter written by Jane Madison in Wednesday’s Clarion. Please be advised that ACT also has a positive message for the voters. It is not doom and gloom. It is about responsible sustainable budgeting. It is vote “Yes” to repeal Ordinance 2005-09.
I have been at most of the borough assembly meetings for the past several years. I heard the testimony the evening that this ordinance came before the assembly. Many people testified against this issue. Our assembly bunched three items sales tax, tourist tax and touching the principle of the land trust into one ordinance.
When we use our democratic initiative process to change a law, we can only put one issue at a time before the borough. Why should the voters have to vote on three issues at the same time? I feel ACT is not responsible for this royal mess, they are only responsible for bringing a very flawed ordinance to the attention of the voters.
