Consolidation is not what the borough needs. The areas are very different and would not function effectively as one entity.

I currently live in the borough and enjoy not paying city taxes or being under the city ordinances. I do not feel it is a punishment to be left out of city votes, more of a blessing.

If individuals are concerned about not having the right to vote on city issues then they should consider moving to the city. If they do that then their vote will be counted.
