    That tally really surprises me . I thought the sentiment was way more in favor of the Home Rule issue . We really do need some good citizens looking over our council and keeping them and their decisions in check .

    Keeping an eye on public officials is the only way to insure accountability.

      But, unfortunately, on any topic one can get out voted on ay topic, and as a final insult, the general electorate, usually, has no collective clue or memory of how any individual on Council voted on said topic. Therefore, all are lumped together as "Council" and are condemned together for the majority decisions.

      This I know to be real and true.

    You couldn't have said it any better . An uneducated voter / citizen is a bad combination . It's very easy to lump all councilmen / politicians / those in power into one category because it's just so easy to stereotype .
