Sullivan/Pat & Tonya.......would either of you support a merger of the city, Frenchtown, and Monroe township as other progressive communities are at least investigating to capitialize of reduced overhead structures and other economies of scale?
I know the question was not directed at me but I would like to comment on the merger thought.
I honestly would support the idea of a merger, because how the City is separate from the Township.
Providing, I was allowed to vote on City Issues.
These are just some of the examples that I feel this way.
I am sure that there are more.
If I need a Lawyer, I have to go into the City.
If I have to go to Court, I have to go into the City.
If go to a Parade, I have to go into the City.
If I want to start a Business, I have to go into the City.
If I take by Son to or from School (MMS), I have to go into the City.
If I attend my Veteran Meetings, I have to go into the City.
If I had an issue involving the Police, I have to go into the City.
I live in the Township, and do conduct a lot of business in the City and making purchase’s, putting my money into City Business’s yet, I am not allowed to vote for a Mayor.
Kind of makes me feel that I am from the “wrong side of the tracks”, they take my money but won’t let me have a say (vote) in City issues.
