- Mr. Henshaw -- no one asserts that there aren't residents in Laurel Park who like the proposal, but the proponents have no right to imply that the association has provided an author to participate in writing it (and thereby, implying that the majority of the association supports it). Also, you may believe that "an elected mayor is a good idea", but do you understand the differences between the existing charter and what is proposed to replace every aspect of it and the impact? This proposal is to replace the entire city charter.
- CCNA "requested that the group remove the names of neighborhood associations that have not taken a position on the charter" -- and rightly so! How manipulative to list them! This was all secret until a reporter revealed the initiative and many of the participants. The list was published on the day the site debuted—no neighborhood association could have met and voted before it was published whether or not to support this political initiative to gut the city charter and replace it with concepts that have been rejected three times at the ballot box and multiple times in proposals put forward in public meetings. Some neighborhood associations are designated as nonpartisan or non-political and never would take a stand on a politically motivated initiative without violating their by-laws. Thank you for covering this attempt to trick unsuspecting voters into believing that this is a grass roots initiative. I have noticed that David Conway is a reporter we can count on to give us the facts and cover the important facets of issues. Keep it up!
- Well, I don't like it. If it comes to a vote that I can cast a ballot on, I will vote "no".
In fact, am getting a little impatient that it keeps coming up. It is just developers and real estate sales types who would stand to gain control of city hall - more than they have already, that is. Straight up corruption . . .
- I live in Laurel Park. I think an elected Mayor is a good idea.
