Just a Thought – About the Urge to Merge

Sometimes it seems like the reaction of city-county voters to the proposed metro charter government is like our local version of the health care reform battle.

On one side, a passionate defense of the urge to merge because of efficiency and savings.

On the other side, as in the health care debate, repeated cries of “Don’t tread on me.”

One major difference is time. Many of the health care reform bill’s provisions don’t kick in for a few more years.

Metro government proponents have less than 90 days to make their case.
