My Thoughts on This Year's Hot City Issues
Key issues in this election include Measure N, the City's budget, and the Facilities Modernization Project (a.k.a. the Trane Company project). Other high-visibility issues this year have included the Downs Median Project and DUI Checkpoints. Here are my thoughts on these issues and others. Feel free to disagree -- but please keep in mind that almost all of these issues come back to taxpayers' pocketbooks, including yours!
