Re: Last Wednesday’s front-page headline, “Water Vote Will be Binding: Davis Residents Will Have the Final Word on the Surface Water Project.” Two paragraphs below contradict this: “I don’t get the sense from the community that they’re worried that if they vote yes, that we have to specifically do the specified project before us,” said Davis City Councilman Brett Lee.
I’m so sick of unclear items put before an intelligent community of voters — to confuse and deceive. The City Council is not doing its job and the members don’t want to be held accountable for a tough and unpopular decision. What did they think their job was when they ran for office?
We need a reliable source of water, but we don’t want to pay more. Short-term vs. long-term thinking. The council can only think of their re-election. This is short-term and irresponsible.
