A true slap in the face of democracy. Now when someone tells me they don’t vote, because their vote doesn’t count, I won’t know how to respond. This issue won by a two-thirds majority and one unelected bureaucrat in Washington DC denies our rights! I won by 51 votes, but it wasn’t because of my skin color or my party affiliation. Partisan elections have no business at the municipal level. I can’t remember a partisan issue dealing with bullet proof vests for our officers, repairing cracks in our streets, or providing clean water to drink.
