Victory

From Cameron Piper: We launched an intensive door to door effort, backed by change.org and raised public awareness of the issue amongst citizens of the city. The City is ultimately attempting to circumvent the petition by issuing bonds under the EDA, but I am optomistic that legal action may be successful in forcing the city to address a referendum.

Non-political Citizens Petition

We the undersigned eligible voter/taxpayer of the City of Forest Lake, request a vote on the the issuance of lease revenue capital improvement Bonds in the amount of approx $23,000,000 to finance the acquisition of land and the construction of a city hall and public safety building.

Please limit signatures to registered voters in Forest Lake, MN or impacted taxpayers

      It is better to table a project than to begin one in controversy and strife. It is better to build lasting relationships, for local government to partner with its citizens, rather than lord over them. When local government subjects their constituent’s families to multi-million dollar debt, the sense of community is forever damaged, for all begin to see that the local government has become our master rather than a servant, set up by us and for us, to serve our public good. Public good is neither found nor served when a project is allowed to begin in a swamp of distain. The city will become heirs to its deceit and fail to prosper; in direct defiance to the projects intentions. It is logical, rational, and just that our community be allowed to vote on the passage of this project. If this project is deemed necessary and worthy, why not let the people decide? For it is true that public good can only be found in the light of honest debate and in the unprejudiced intentions of a just people.

      I don't believe it's necessary in light of the exiting facilities.

      Citys have been overstepping constituional right far to much. What citizen of a city would ever elect one council member that was this irrisponsible with our taxpayer money. I think none would unless they directly benifited.
