House Bill 1035, sponsored by Representative Jayer Williamson, needs to be defeated. It is merely a thinly veiled attempt to hamstring an aggrieved community’s ability to exercise the right of home rule.
Communities need this when the other means of redress have failed to achieve what many in the community feel is inequitable governance.
Happy New Years!
We keep being told “be more green, conserve energy, reduce CO2, stop using fossil fuels etc.” We’re told the solution, in transportation, is to go electric. I disagree! The most green is the 100+ year old super affordable Bicycle.
Last summer our Preserve Navarre nonprofit launched an online survey at www.YourNavarre.com. The goal of this survey was to determine if Navarre residents desire to become their own city with home rule.
To date the results have given us a resounding yes. Our latest reports continue to show 66% of the respondents (3,141) support the idea.
As I pondered a letter written by a local gentleman who states that Incorporation of Navarre is a bad idea, something struck me.
The writer stated, and I quote, “Or could we enjoy our freedom, mind our own business and appreciate a county government that generally leaves us alone unless we ask for help.”
