Maybe if we could have horses in town …

Mayoral candidate Tim Ashley thinks it would be a good idea to merge city and county government into one.

Editors asked readers what they think about that idea.

Gina Hochhalter’s response: “Combining them means that people have, instead of two options, only one. The reduction of options is rarely productive, but rather confining, the consequence of control. I would have to know a lot more about what he thinks the benefits would be. (Perhaps we can house horses on city property?)”
