Group 8

1. John Butler, 1506 Maxine Ave., Waterloo

As we’ve all seen tonight the people have made it quite clear what they want. As I understand democracy correctly, you are supposed to base your decision on the will of the people. It also seems to me that a city that gives more say to its businessmen over its doctors, scientists, farmers, and artists, is a city that’s running on borrowed time. I also feel that a city like that isn’t one that many young people will want to stay in. So I am asking you to vote “no.”
