Voters understood issue

February 19, 2017

The small turnout at the second Democracy Day event on Feb. 9 might indicate that the 1,807 Defiance citizens who passed the ballot measure by 67 percent in 2013 were ill-advised or did not understand the issue. I believe they understood it perfectly. Currently in the state of Ohio 10 ballot initiatives have been passed in Ohio communities, including Toledo’s passage by 64 percent in 2016.
