The something you can live west I mean do they have a tea served tell us tell us how you feel Smart. Well on the court this Western Europe autumn morning and cute we can all that ever and I I I certainly disagree. With the gut decision made by Albert voters but but I I respected.

Citizens reform group that participated in cause about seventeen opportunity or citizen to go in decide besides cost to the government. And we haven't citizens have have adopted those don't as investors in eleven of those races so we're making progress it has a little bit of the setback to see Tom.

And that's all mountain Western New York turning the corner and looking forward to radio. More successful future what we're trying to do here just align our government structure without future and yum. But hammered voters have decided that he said to work. To it to go back. Kevin are you worried that the sentiment may spill over to other towns. Well Pete the underlying idea of the work could argue would Tikrit corporates do it.

A very special elections sometime in the near future or next November what can you tell us anything. Let it bug by virtue of the Arab position that voters may last and I doubt that under the law that covered this opportunity to a downside or upside. On the hadn't known that they made the decision and now it will be implemented a police chalk it in 28 chi kick a couple of years to work. To orderly Maxi -- transition back to the the larger board that but that will happen now and and and I I must say again on our I disagree with the position I respect their. And I think it's now been elected to hampered their duty to. The production over Syracuse. The bickering and squandering that unfortunately has start our own and make the five member board work.
