"If this mayor or Council, or future ones, pull "a fast one," we should bring out the tar and feathers. But let's give them the benefit of the doubt until then."
So let's trust that government, given new sources of money, will spend it wisely, will not play a shell game using the parks money in the general fund elsewhere?... Really?... Are you kidding me?... When push comes to shove that's exactly what will happen.
The most important part of the Issue 1 language IS the missing "maintenance of effort (MOE) clause". A MOE clause is what I call checks and balances, marching orders, or reasonable boundaries that we expect our local government to work within.
So go fix the Issue 1 language to include the MOE clause and resubmit it for the next election cycle.
