WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE COURTHOUSE VOTE

May 07, 2008

In today's Des Moines Register, an explanation of the defeat of the referendum to fund a new Polk County courthouse that strikes me as the right one:

The voters of Polk County no longer trust elected officials to spend their money. As we watch the cash go out for CIETC and the CIETC trial, why should we vote to give the county more money to fritter away?

Maybe people believe local government needed the cash if the city and county weren't making equity investments in sports bars.
