A 'No' Vote On Florida's 'Hometown Democracy' Amendment
Promoters of the amendment call it "hometown democracy"; opponents say it is costly and complicated to pull off.
Zephyrhills council president Lance Smith said in the St. Petersberg Times, "It sounds good, but it really, really will be bad for the state of Florida."
Alachua County Today says that Amendment 4 "strikes fear in the heart of local governments."
Commissioner Eric May feels that Amendment 4 "could lead to frequent, chaotic elections and would slow down any local development."
