"Marina vote not binding" is what the headline said. I support the Marina District Project and if the vote will only be a guage of whether citizens are in favor of the project, then why not use the online vote in the Register that asked if people would vote for the project be the gauge. If you added up the citizens and the non-citizens against the project, the vote still fell short of the number of the citizens for the project.
How do I know it was accurate? I tried to vote after I saw the results, then I couldn't vote. I knew someone who had voted and they couldn't vote again. Seems fairly accurate to me. So why spend the time and effort of the city and its citizens to promote the project when we already have a gauge showing people are for the project? Those against it will cry foul even if the vote in August is in favor of the project.
No growth means higher taxes or less services. Which would you like? I would rather see new businesses and people come to the community.
For those in favor of a vote in August and don't trust the commission to do the right thing, why did you elect them? That was where your vote determined the city's future. Let them do their jobs.
I am confident in the commission and that the project would pass in a vote.
