I am disappointed to see the power

I am disappointed to see the power of the language being misused to manipulate votes. To property owners in this county, the phrase “property rights” sounds good, but for myself, and I believe for the great majority of property owners (as well as our many non-land-owning residents who are consistently left out of the discussion), the so-called “property rights” position is actually contrary to our best interests.

Elizabeth Martin and Bruce Conklin have a record of making thoughtful, balanced decisions by looking at the total picture.infrastructure, public safety, traffic, roads, resources and neighborhoods. They deserve to be re-elected.
