FromDC2Iowa: Voting for Our Great-Grandchildren

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

This morning there's a lot more at stake on the forthcoming November 4, 2008, election day -- less than eight months from now -- than there was yesterday morning. No, I'm not talking about the three senators, Obama, McCain and Clinton. I'm talking about something that is going to have a lot longer-lasting impact on eastern Iowans than the good (or harm) caused by a one or two-term U.S. president. Yesterday morning the Johnson County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to pursue the preparation of a ballot proposition that would authorize a $20 million bond issue to be used for the acquisition of additional land for natural resource preservation. To pass, it will require not just a 50% approval, but a 60% approval.
