Dock Expansion Vote!
By Rick Watson


October 28, 2005

Technically you are correct that the recent failure of the bond issue was not a vote to stop the expansion, however most everyone I have spoken to (not related to the tourism industry) who voted No, felt this vote was a clear message related to expansion or not and could care less if it was a bond, gift, grant, or whatever source of funding.

If you are so sure about yourself and the intention of the voters about expansion then please put it back on the ballot and ask "Do we want to expand the dock! Yes or No" and let's end this debate and move towards what the people want and just not the government or a few select industry people.
