Voters need to decide consolidation issue

 


To the Editor:

In regard to the consolidation issue, we need to vote on it, for or against it.

Many mistakes were made in the process of drafting and circulating the petition, but the intention was in the right.

Those who are opposed to it may fall into two categories. They are afraid it would pass or they are afraid their financing isn’t in order if it does. Some may have personal reasons.

This is a time when the electorate has to have its say. This question has to be decided by the majority of voters, not by self-serving individuals.

Let’s get the millage issues straightened out with regards to which way it goes so that financing isn’t an issue. Then put it on the ballet, even if we need a special election. Let’s not leave an opening for lawyers and judges to deny us our right to vote on it.
