I have a bit of a problem with the need to put the homeless housing question to the public:
1. I expect my elected representative(s) to be close enough to the ‘grass roots’ to know how we feel.
2. I also expect my representative(s) to exhibit ‘leadership,’ in which I include the ability to persuade us to accept unpopular actions that are for the common good.
This ‘question’ suggests to me that the incumbents that put this question are not qualified for the job they are seeking. Is it time for a clean sweep?
By the way, I shall be voting for the $10/year option and as I am a renter, will insist that my rent be increased by about 30 cents/month to cover my share of the cost.
