Voting is overrated. Remember what happened to the measure limiting
short term rentals in the county? A bunch of whiners filed a lawsuit and our vote to limit the amount of STRs was tossed out.
Maybe that’s different than voting for an individual, I’m for term limits, and rarely vote for incumbents. I am against invasive weeds though-and that includes merrywanna, I’m really tired of smelling that stuff every time I walk outside.
