The candidates that voted NO for questions 2, 7 and 8 are the only candidates that thought about the questions prior to responding. Or, they responded as their sponsors directed them to. Question 2, the only logical response is NO when one considers that this utility expansion was built with no proven justification. Why should residents be required to hook up to something they do not need? The only known purpose of forcing residents to hook up is to ensure that growth on Marco Island may continue. Who in their right mind other then those investors who own commercial property without access to a sewer line wants to see or vote for mixed use condos on Bald Eagle, North Barfield and San Marco? Question 7, you have to be blind and deaf to not believe our city has been on a spending spree for the last two years. Time to control and reduce spending so that our middle class can remain here. A NO vote will inhibit unbridled growth designed only to pay off investors and slow down construction. Question 8, This is just another scheme to subvert the CAP. It will result in increased taxes during it's second year. No tax break here, just more revenue to spend. It also will reduce the amount of money one can deduct from their federal taxes. Federal tax deductions of state taxes are really an indirect subsidy of our city's expenditures. Who in their right mind would vote other than NO and volunteer to pay more taxes?
