Citizen initiative on IRV. Let the people tell the politicians how we want to vote. Howard Dean, who told us over and over that we have the power -- Ha! Not when it comes to deciding how we want to vote apparently -- made a TV ad to tell us that his candidate lost in FL because they didn't have IRV, and then he tells us not to vote based on whether our candidate lost in the last mayoral election! [At least he's using an election example instead of skim milk, jelly beans and ice cream.] And Bernie? Bernie, who is senator today because Burlington elected him mayor with a 43% plurality vote in a 4-way race, and never was there any doubt that he earned every single vote and was a good mayor. John McCain? He cares about how the mayor is elected in Burlington, VT? Of course not.
On Tuesday we go into the privacy of a voting booth and tell the politicians how we want to vote for mayor in Burlington. And it will be a true majority, because this vote isn't IRV. Repeal Yes, Repeal No. It's that simple.
