“Our community should also keep in mind that in 2016 – we will have school board elections with two open seats – which would be a great opportunity for someone to learn & run a campaign for next year.” Normandy added.

If the city had placed this ballot dedicated to things it says it wants to do for the citizen, it would of needed 2/3 pass, and didn’t, it lowered the bar, because they knew it was a hardsell without the fears they wrote on the mailers. Lets follow the money…to see when it goes to the employee pensions. This ballot did not get 2/3 or the vote.

Sad to see how our city pushed this on citizens, I held them to a higher standard. No more.
