Mike Norton Agrees With Commentary On Citizen Statements, Disagrees On Incumbent Protection

May 24, 2001

YOU ARE CORRECT ON THE CITY COUNCIL'S NEW CITIZEN STATEMENTS POLICY-IT IS A DOUBLE STANDARD- I ALSO DISAGREE WITH COUNCILMAN HINTZ. THE POLICY SHOULD BE THE SAME FOR CITIZENS AND COUNCIL MEMBER . ELECTED OFFICIALS SHOULD NOT HAVE MORE RIGHTS THAN OTHER CITIZENS. DID NOT COUNCILMAN ESSLINGER VIOLATE THE COUNCIL POLICY BY WISHING YOU AND OTHERS HAPPY BIRTHDAY? IS THE CITY GOING TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY TONY?

LET ME GET ONE FINAL SHOT ON THE REDISTRICTING PLAN- I HAVE 400-500 AND MAYBE MORE NEW CONSTITUENTS WHO COULD RUN AGAINST ME AND DEFEAT ME NEXT SPRING, SO THERE IS NO INCUMBENT PROTECTION PLAN IN PLACE. PERHAPS WE COULD CALL IT INCUMBENT PRESERVATION.
