My Position- City Charter Amendment
As you are aware, in addition to the vote for Mayor, being on the Primary Ballot, you are being asked to amend the City Charter , to have both the City Primary and General election dates correspond, with the State elections. This is to supposedly save us money in the budget. According to many conversations, I've had with individuals who wrote the initial City Charter, it was their intend to seperate the two , to allow The City of Palm Coast to have it's own election cycle, and allowing the resident/voters, to learn the most about its candidates, and not have them lost, at the bottom of a long ballot, among many other candidates. This makes sense to me, and allows us as voters, to get a long look at our candidates, and make well informed decisions ..I will be voting NO, on this amendment..
