Charter Government – Poll

PLEASE VOTE. Your vote is anonymous. No record is kept of the voter. (Also, there are several comments at the bottom of the page. Feel free to add a comment.) See Charter Government Video.

Several residents have asked how I feel about Charter Government. The issue is complex. Ultimately, it comes down to “can an increase in government be justified?”

I think, by and large, it does warrant consideration. I spoke with my friend who is married to a famous political figure in St. Charles, Mo. They have had Charter for about 15 years. This is a person I trust implicitly. He tells me that from his perspective, Home Rule has been worth it.

I think this form of government will be more responsive and sensitive to our specific needs. Representative Scott Dieckhaus has told me he is for it and sufficiently satisfied many of the concerns I have with Home Rule.

• Charter Government

Several people have asked me about my opinion on Charter Government. At this point I am neutral on the topic. It does, however, concern me that almost everything I read on the internet is pro charter government.

It reminds me of a Mark Twain Quote: ” Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.”

I am pausing and reflecting.
