Darn ! Dan English is so logical. No wonder he keeps getting elected (including my little Republican vote). But if our elected officials have already decided to have an advisory vote for the library, open space, and public safety why not just add the Sherman...

Peanut Gallery (Hagadone Gardens IV)

DaveO, I think the Mayor and four of the six council members will want to avoid placing an advisory on the February ballot fearing the anti-BigD electorate will be successful and also torpedo the proposed library and emergency service levies. Like many others have said,...
