Why not have the vote several weeks after the cruise ships leave. This way people will have time to settle into their thoughts. I fine it very unfair that such an important issue is brought to the polls in the peak of the cruise ship season. I have worked in tourism for 15 years. I have been frustrated many times trying to dodge my way through traffic this time of year, but I still see the importance of keeping the cruise lines interested in coming here.
If I did not work in tourism and I had to fight my way through traffic on the way to the polls, there is no question as to how I would vote.
