Week 36, #2

September 3rd, 2007 by dk

Today (9/7/07) is the last day the City Councils can act to put a ballot measure on the November ballot. Pity. Since two towns are being forced to ask voters how they feel about a gas tax, I wish they would also ask voters how they would feel about city leaders taking the voting patterns into account when divvying up limited road funds. (Let’s face it. With or without the road tax, the funds will be limited.) We hear plenty about N.I.M.B.Y. — Not In My Back Yard. But when it comes to repairing potholes, people’s attitude seems to be the opposite — Please In My Front Yard.

(See an earlier iteration of this idea here.)

One of these four ideas will be developed into a column on Wednesday to be published in The Register-Guard on Friday. I’m asking you to help me choose between them. Between now and the end of Tuesday, leave comments here or send me an e-mail if you’d rather be more private. Or, at the very least, RATE the idea (and the others) so I know which one people like best. No promises, though. This ain’t American Idol. But I will post an entry on Wednesday to say which one I’m choosing (and probably why.) I plan to do this each week — often by Friday, but always by Monday, so visit often and tell me which idea intrigues you the most. Thanks!
