What a surprise, Vlieger is still trying to hold Sunnyside back. Yes, let's deny citizens new jobs in a new industry. We've got way too many jobs around here anyway.
"It is one thing to decriminalize marijuana and quite another to endorse the sale and to profit from it." So, what, we should deny there is already a market? We should leave those sales without tax or regulation? You know who really wants regulated marijuana sales banned in the area? Dealers.
Someone is bitter they lost their election so badly.
While we're at it, let's get rid of anything addictive. Caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, television. video games, a very long list of prescription drugs, carbohydrates, coin and trading card collecting, etc. Who needs individual liberty?
How about we educate both the parents and the students on why consuming marijuana is harmful to the developing brain? Banning it would do nothing other than prevent legitimate jobs from coming here and the ban would maintain the status quo for those that already sell it illegally.
So, Jason Raines and Don Vlieger don't support intervention. I thought they were the only two council members that wanted the gangs out...were they just grandstanding this whole time? Sure seems like it.
So, Vlieger's claim of lowest crime rates in 23 years isn't accurate? Whodathunkit
“I want the voters to understand what a mess I was voted into,” said Vlieger
What a joke. This city was doing well with over a million in reserves before Vlieger and his bloc of four spent the city into oblivion with their pet projects such as the already defunct drug dog. That un-budgeted item was rammed through council by Vlieger within about a month of the budget being set. The cost of the dog and everything required to use its services runs into the hundreds of thousands. Oh yeah, and Mr. Vlieger happened to miss all of the budgeting meetings before he decided to blow things up.
