City Of North Plains Petitions State To Block Citizens From Voting
Editor’s Note: The following is a press release from Friends of North Plains Smart Growth. This is an important point in Washington County history. We are seeing the people’s will ignored and usurped by local officials. What North Plains is doing here is wrong, in my opinion. They are trying to block people who live and pay taxes in a City from voting on their future. What does it mean to live in a city anymore? What does it mean to be a Citizen? Apparently, the Mayor of North Plains and the City Council of North Plains do not care for what the voters want nor the rule of law that exists now. They are determined to shove growth, much of it heavy industrial growth and chemical plants, down the throats of their people. What sort of leadership is that? Certainly not Democracy.
