Editor, the Advocate:
What happened? First of all, most people are not qualified to vote on amendments, myself included. In this case, they have not studied the issue as well Mr. Pruitt, or have fallen victim to crafty wording.
Secondly, 5 out of 7 city council members (I'll not mention names) did not understand the amendment either, as they would have not unanimously approved placing it on the ballot and now with a better understanding decide not to ratify it.
Thirdly, the City Attorney may have not understood it either, as he certainly would have educated the council on the issues, thus avoiding their flip-flop.
