City Council, District 9
The City argues that most municipalities do not allow for public vote on the revision of land codes. A quick Google search proves this to be untrue. I understand the problem with public input. Sometimes well-organized interests groups go up against the “great good” goals of a city. In this case, we have two very organized groups who are in opposition of each other. There is a middle ground and it is up to the city and interest groups to find common ground rather than call each other names. Citizens have a right to organize and fight for their interests, and the “greater good” means different things to these groups. Local government is the closest thing we have to a true democracy, the city does not have the right to take that away.
