They’re smarter in Monongalia County

Monongalia County voters shot down a proposed user fee by a wide margin, and of course Charleston mayor Danny Jones had to get a few words in on it.

“If you would have asked the public in Charleston to vote for a user fee (in 2004), they would have voted against it 4 to 1,” Jones said. “It was only until after they saw results did they vote for it by an overwhelming majority.”

In other words, don’t give them a choice up front. And make sure you don’t let non-residents vote.
