Let’s rectify the problems by approving a carefully researched and all-encompassing solution paid by a 1-cent sales tax with a hard sunset clause.
Vote “yes” on May 3 to provide the residents of Grand Forks city and county with a 21st-century public library.
The Herald publishes and promotes the library's propaganda (the disinformation). As a result, the library agitators now have a “mandate” to pursue the new library given the alleged widespread “support.”
I think it would be wise for city leaders to heed the wishes of the public. One needs only to look to this past November to see what happened to elected officials who strayed from the wants of the electorate.
While not all the comments were positive (with 7.8 percent of respondents being against building a new library), most of the comments supported the project and offered very helpful suggestions that can be used now and in the future.
The Grand Forks library campaign’s recent telephone survey supposedly is an accurate reflection of public opinion. But I took the survey, and nowhere did it let people comment on the idea of keeping the library at its current location.
Promoters of a new library blew their cover when they let the Leevers site become one of the finalist locations. The Leevers site is only 119,529 square feet. That’s 5,260 square feet smaller than the present library site.
