Update: Well, I’m optimistic. Sarah Pelican is a very reasonable person with a great deal of experience to bring to commission meetings. When elected officials forget who runs the show, the result is a vote to replace. I’ve had the opportunity to talk with Sarah and John Elwell. They probably were not as different as you might imagine. Both indicated a willingness to talk about ideas to save money for the taxpayer and share those ideas with the winning candidate. John, if you’re reading this, I hope you either take the time to send the ideas to Sarah and the rest of the commission or send them here to publish on the blog.
As a similar debate rages in nationally, Fernandina is a tiny mirror of an increasingly polarized view of government. The view of an elected benevolent representative who knows more than the voter….willing to do as he or she pleases with little input from the voter….or a view of truly representative government….of, by and for the people is what we are debating.
Debt is a tool, but I think we all can see the list of wishes combined with debt on the back of the taxpayer, is a dangerous combination. Now is the time….to Take Back Fernandina.
