@Ted big mood
Ok I've mostly locked in my ballot.
I still haven't picked a circuit court judge, and I don't think I will. They both look great.
For school board, @Simon 's mom likes Angie Smith and Jeff Gaynor but hasn't decided on a third yet, so I've got those two filled in, and I guess I'll take some time to look up what I can about the remaining 7 candidates.
@soccrchik "Additionally, she supported a $26M no-bid outsourcing contract for IT services, then used the opportunity to publicly insult the IT staff she just voted to terminate"
@soccrchik Also I had to read and reread and eventually give up on the first sentence and move on to the second before I figured out that you were not talking about my place of employment.
@soccrchik Thanks for digging! All good to know.
Ok, I get it now; proposal B (Ann Arbor 2020) has a context. Historically, the city has built new sidewalks by charging adjacent property owners.
If proposal B passes, the city will have a few years during which it can add new sidewalks with tax revenue instead, and it's part of the city's efforts to discourage driving and encourage walking.
As a citizen who walks everywhere and almost never drives, I am in favor.
@soccrchik Cool. I’ll likely hang onto my ballot for another week, if you hear anything.
@soccrchik I know you've attended classes in the past at WCC—do you have any knowledge to pass my way about trustees?
