I have read the reasons for establishing Home Rule by the quacks who have presented them on their website. First, term limits. The truth is term limits are a very bad idea and have repeatedly caused serious problems not to mention denying people the right to vote for who they want to. Term limits would have kept FDR from being our President during WWII and we might have very well lost that war with a different President. Term limits forced us to give up Bill Clinton and gave us the disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush. Second, stopping tax increases, as the Federal Government can testify to if you stop tax increases you force the government to borrow and look what that has accomplished to the Federal Government. Third, conflict of interest, this is absurd, in a small community it is impossible to eliminate conflict of interest, the best you can do is try and control it. All this is a bunch of people who know a lot less than they think they do and are trying to make other people as dumb as they are. A HUGE WASTE of TAXPAYERS' MONEY!!!!!!!!!!
you must be one of the dumb sob that keeps voting for the crooked sheriff Steve burns.
Term limits for all. If you can only have a president and a governor for 8 years. We should only have a mayor and sheriff for 8. That way you can keep thugs like Steve burns from making a career in stealing people's money.

97% of the people in Greene County did not sign this petition, of these 97% I wonder how many can properly fill out a job application and deliver it without bringing a parent or relative to the interview.
good grief

Something needs to be done. All is not well here in Greene County. This current form of government is not accountable to we the people. They have too much power to tax and spend. They are out of control. We need to vote them out of power and fundamentally restructure this flawed and failed form of government.
These home rule people are on the right track they realize that there is a serious problem and are taking the appropriate legal action to begin to remedy this unacceptable situation.
Where do I sign and volunteer to help? We must begin to effect a positive change around here.
