Reader calls editor a hypocrite for voting

Dear editor,

Mr. Farrell, what a hypocrite. You say in your paper (Referendum dilemma resolved, Dec. 1 column) that non-property owners should not be able to vote on the homeless referendum then say oh what the hell I  am going to vote anyway. And of course you vote yes, no tax on you, right?

What kind of precedent is this setting when one group having no consequence in the outcome can force another to pay the price?

It would be interesting to know how many of the voters are actually property owners and how many are not. Maybe you should put that in print. I will add this has nothing to do with the homeless, it is about another tax being force on property owners with an unfair voting procedure.

This vote and referendum must be rescinded.
