JUST SEND YOUR LAWYER IN &
TELL EM WHAT YOU WANT

The members of the borough assembly that did not get on the agenda
their opposition of Ballot Measure 1 the jewelry store initiative,
I would like to say to you" thank goodness for the election
Many of you expressed your point of view on this issue publicly
and apparently the manager Mr. Eckert had an opposing resolution
ready for you to vote on. Much like the vote you must have taken
on the stand you took on the initiative in the first place. An
attorney and clerk told you this initiative was a legal avenue
to pursue a ballot measure - so it was put on the ballot.
Then another attorney told you that some of the assembly opposing
this issue that was approved by the body was in someway illegal.
I am not an attorney and do not claim to know the legalities
of this seemingly contradictory position you all have been bullied
into. But after witnessing this act of an assembly of people
who are supposed to represent the community (all the community
not just certain sides), I am tempted to test my theory.
My lawyer may be in to your
chambers someday telling you that an initiative banning all general
contractors under the age of 45 (as I am rapidly approaching
that age and there are too many young Contractors out there)
is a reasonable and constitutional measure. And in this instance
I hope you all are still there because if my lawyer tells you
that this is the way it is, it must be true right!!
Again thank goodness for the election process.
