Opinion: Politicians should not tell people how to vote

Politicians don’t know what is best and they need to stop trying to tell people what to support.

I was NOT happy last year when Democrat Alicia Rule, a Blaine City Councilmember, told me in a resolution to NOT vote for the $30 car tabs which was passed by the voters. I am even more angry that the Democrats have used our taxpayer dollars to delay it in court. We don’t have $30 car tabs this year because of them.

I paid well over $30 this year for my tabs, I could have used that money for more important things. My budget is tight and I knew what I was voting for when I voted YES to $30 car tabs.

I am voting for Representative Luanne Van Werven this year; she respects my decision –and my wallet.
