Your Opinion

Do you think a recall campaign against Mayor Charlie Hales and Commissioner Steve Novick is justified?

Yes, the mayor and commissioner are trying to push through a transportation fee without a vote, and they are otherwise wasting taxpayers' money
vote
No, a recall campaign is justified only if public officials abuse their office. Hales and Novick are merely proposing ideas
vote
No, but a different campaign should be started to repeal any transportation fee that is adopted
