Pleased that issue will be put on ballot

As a member of the governmental task force, I want to thank the mayor and commissioners for agreeing, with our recommendation, to place the issue about Dixon's form of government on the November 2014 ballot.

I believe this was a good vote for the citizens of Dixon, as it means they will have an opportunity to be involved in a meaningful decision about the future of our community. 

Dixon will decide whether to continue with the commission form of government or to change to a council/manager form. Whatever the outcome of the vote, it will be a wonderful exercise in democracy.

November 2014 seems a long way away, but I imagine that by next summer, there will be campaigns underway to educate and persuade the voters one way or the other.  I look forward to the debate.
