Vic Epperly's letter on Dec. 6 revealed he must be a politician in the true form. He implies the people don't know what they want. And oh, yes, by all means, don't let them choose between the spending schemes on a single ballot, just spread them out over the year so they really don't know what their government is costing them.
Victor is urging improving the possibility of an aquatic center passing as a result of low-voter response normally experienced during special ballot offerings, such as school bonds and levies. So hurry and run the scam.
We citizens should demand a policy requiring all financial ballot measures to be presented on the same ballot. This would help us lowly citizens pick and choose which issue we want to spend our scarce dollars on. Come to think of it, a similar policy should be in effect for each of our Tri-Cities when our elected officials want to raise fees and rates to cover management's foolish spending habits and salary increases.
It must be silly season for city governments. Thanks Epperly, for turning me on!
Never miss a local story.
