Why should people who rent get a vote? It's not their property? Do they get a vote when there are rezoning? I don't think so. Why should people who don't live in the area get a vote? If they don't live in the area it doesn't concern them. How are the citizens of Wilmington affected by the vote? Right now they aren't giving up anything if it is annexed they will. They will give up services because of expansion. Bringing in more property doesn't do anything but expand trouble and the power the city thinks it has. What is unconstitutional is that the City thinks they have the right to bulldoze their way and take rights away. The bottom line is the city needs to find innovative ways to operate. It needs to live within a budget using the revenue it creates and not try to steal from others.
