We have to say that we are saddened by the comments made by Councilor Ken Milder as the council voted 6-1 to exclude the public’s input on the divisive skate park issue.
We did not think that involving the public was anti-democratic. But apparently the councilor thinks so.
His comment that, “I initially thought maybe they should let it go to ballot, but then we thought it was a cop-out. I’m not inclined to let it go to ballot.”
This even after commenting that the community is divided 50-50 on the issue.
