A simple solution: referendum

Members of the city council keep saying the majority of people in the city of Camden voted for a sports facility in the 1 percent tax referendum that failed, so why not have another referendum again to prove them right?

There are merits to both sides of the argument to building a sports complex in Camden. The fairest solution would be to have a referendum and let the city voters decide the issue. If over 50 percent want a new complex, then build it. If over 50 percent of the registered voters would like to use these tax dollars to help existing businesses or use the money to attract new businesses, or even repeal the tax, so be it. Let the voters decide.
