Unfortunately

the voting rights of non-property owners were sanctified some years ago. Same thing with poll taxes being abolished. A valid point can be made that issues which affect real estate owners should only be voted on by real estate owners. After all, if the issue has a limited impact, ie raising real estate taxes, then those directly affected are those who should have the vote. The Community College did an excellent job of lobbying for their agenda. Lesson learned for the next election. If you are opposed to the downtown rejuevenation, then support candidates who support your issues. Support them with your vote; support them with your campaign contributions.
