Emotionally, I support the Water and Land Legacy bond proposal that Polk County, Iowa, voters will vote to approve or reject on election day. I want clean rivers and believe that it is a proper role of government to regulate our environment. But, if we feel that we should spend more on water quality and recreation, then we should pay today, not bind people in the future to pay the cost. As we have become more prosperous, we have done a better and better job of cleaning up our environment. We should continue our current path of spending what we can pay for today. Vote NO on the Water and Land Legacy bond proposal on the back side of your ballot.
