In reference to the Tacoma News Tribune Article (Puyallup rejects initiatives) by Sara Schilling Nov 11 2010
The news article was a little misleading. It should have read (Puyallup City Council rejects initiatives). It should now be obvious by the citizens of Puyallup that the present City Council members who rejected initiatives could care less about what the citizens want. As stated in the news article, initiatives allow residents to propose new ordinances while referendum give then the chance to nullify ones that are already on the books. As stated by councilmember Knutsen, the public should have a choice, which I fully agree.
