Whose mandate?

Whose mandate? Carmel Pine Cone, Oct. 13, 2023

Representing the new housing mandate to the public as coming from the “state” is a soft sell. It is in fact coming from the Democratic Party-controlled state government. If you are registered as a Democrat and vote that way, then you supported this autocratic housing mandate to overbuild.

While Democrats often speak of protecting our democracy, they didn’t ask for special voter approval on this destructive mandate. They did not negotiate with the other party.

We need voters to elect Republican candidates to protect us from future one-party autocratic mandates.
