Let voters decide


My husband used to say,”You can depend on good lawyers most of the time, except at election time. We all forget the law in the passion of the race”

I just received a flyer from Richard Carrigan and his group of nine, at least three of whom are lawyers I respect, except this is election time. It seems the purpose of this flyer is to convince us that Measure U is a dangerous power grab by the council “to disrespect democracy and to overturn the voters express mandate” passed six years ago.

What seems to be forgotten in this flyer is that it is the voter who decides if the present term limit should be extended, not eradicated. While the council raises the question, it is the voter who decides. That is the way democracy works.
