It is too bad that because of the structure of city politics that only the registered voters of the city of Traer had the deciding factor in the election last evening and it would be interesting to see how many non Alliant customers as well as residents living outside of the city limits that will not be effected by the change cast their vote last evening.
This type of special city election should of been open to all parties involved, meaning true resident home and business owners within the city.
Makes one wonder if the results of this election are in fact highly misrepresented.
Furthermore I find it a direct conflict of interest that Traer's own city clerk who is involved in the results of the election is an employee of TMU and tends to gain from a yes vote.
So much for small town Iowa politics. Very questionable indeed.
