As election day approaches I am urging people to use their heads and not their emotions and to vote No on Measure Y.
Why? I have yet to hear an honest, forthright response from the City Manager or the City Council to requests for factual information on exactly which essential city services would suffer or be cut out if Measure Y fails to pass.
An informed electorate deserves facts, not half-truths nor appeals to “doom and gloom” scenarios. No one has provided me or the rest of the voters with information from responsible sources that an be used to assist voters in their choice at the polls on November 6th. Surrogates with opinions abound, but responsible city governance has been factually silent.
I believe in responsible city government with the best interest of the taxpayers, not vested interests, at heart. Until I see this happen, I will vote no on Measure Y and urge other Piedmonters to do the same.
