" However, you are frau-frau enough to attract the taste buds of Mr. Eric" What the heck do I have to do with this discussion of butcher shops? And what's so interesting about a mosque and people praying?.

"In other words, speak for yourself."---Phil As, of course, you never speak for others. Meanwhile, I'm taking a survey of who will not vote for me if I run for Mayor. Query: Can a canidate's knowing how to run a city be the best reason not to vote for the candidate? Yes or No?

Phil... I understood your content & context of your former statements. The goal of any election is to present opportunities & issues to registered voters and the candidates who campaign for an elected office. Therefore, our recent election for cityhood did not guarantee nor convey the right to either the YES or NO to win. The voters made the decision. And, the voters will make the decisions for the Nov elections.

Does anyone have information to impart about overlay districts? It seems to me that's an important tool for any area of the new city concerned about zoning. I know nothing about them except that they exist.

Smedrik of the Lowerlands and Phil, thank you each for your clarifications.
