I’d like to congratulate supervisors Mary Adams and John Phillips on using good sense, respecting the wishes of their constit-uency, and recognizing the 16-17 year old voting issue for the diversion it is from the real work needed in Monterey County. One supervisor flipped his vote, noting that it was just a vote in concept, and the other two yes votes remained firm in their desire to give the voting privilege to children.
The “No” votes reflect maturity, good sense, and a willingness to abide by the wish-es of the populace who put them in their po-sitions. Kudos to you, Mary Adams and John Phillips. I believe that your constituency will remember your good sense when they are at the ballot box.
