It seems, every person or group for or against, likes to tell you their side of the story/issue and make it seem quite flowery or quite frightening depending on their belief or political motivation. Every time I get a "No on N" flyer I also get a vote for Steve Byrd flyer. Kind of makes me wonder if he's worried about transparency if he gets elected. That being said, it is still enough to know that the ordanances and propositions be put forrth on the ballot are, let's say misleading to be nice. so I will most likely vote NO on all of them. We need to have an ordanance that requires the items put on the ballot, have a common sense definition that is the defining definition making the intent more important than the wording.

We need to be concerned about having the healthiest foods possible. Without labeling we cannot make good value choices.
