    How could council members expect any other result? A dismal failure of leadership. They left substantial reforms on the table. Voters were watching.

    60/40 split (called it!)

    It is time for some fresh new ideas from city hall. Insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Obviously over half of us who voted do not value the proposal set forth by city hall. I do believe there is solid ground for an even higher increase if it is done right. Council, this is your chance to shine with leadership.
