This will be the 4th time the Town will vote on this proposition. Last time, Democrats proposed it in 1963, 1964 & 1988 when Republicans controlled the local government. Each time residents voted against the proposition 2 to 1. Now the tables are turned and it is back on the voters to once again reject this proposal. Let’s keep governing the Town of Manlius as a whole town. Don’t divide Manlius.
