From Geoffrey:

Dear Citizens of Allen County, I ask that you vote against the referendum to change Allen County government. Getting rid of three of four votes that each Allen County resident currently has to elect Allen County Council members seems like less voice for the voter. What is wrong with “at-large” seats? Changing to districts that have a common interest seems destined to shortchange representation for rural residents. With one county executive, how will transparency and accountability occur when we now have public Friday morning meetings of the County Commissioners? Too many questions and not enough answers. I say, vote no on the Allen County Government Change referendum on November 4.
