Update on 3.11.20
Charbonneau Residents Need To Be Aware
Charbonneau residents need to be aware of an important measure on the May 19 election ballot. And they need to vote! If approved by Wilsonville voters, the measure would limit the number of terms the city’s mayor and members of the City Council could serve. Not only that, it would be retroactive and preclude our current mayor from serving again, should he choose to be a candidate in the November election and be re-elected.
Why is this important? Because Mayor Tim Knapp and the majority of the rest of the Council have “had Charbonneau’s back” in matters related to the possible expansion of the Aurora State Airport and to attempts to change the zoning of land to the south when developers have attempted to get it re-zoned to allow industrial plants and facilities. The Council has urged an open and above board process when decisions are being made and they have insisted on a seat at the table when matters that affect Charbonneau and the rest of the city are being decided.
There are some who believe that term limits are a good idea, that they result in new, fresh blood in our political system. Others believe that it makes no sense to deprive the city of knowledgeable and experienced leadership. You should be allowed to decide who you want to lead our city. That’s why we have elections.
Watch for your ballot at the end of April and send it in.
