Tarpon Springs debates referendum questions: Con
Editor's note: When Tarpon Springs voters go to the polls Tuesday, they will find six referendum questions on the ballot. The first five of those would, if approved, make changes in the city charter; the sixth would give the city permission to buy a small piece of property. There has been considerable debate on the ballot questions, so today the Times gives two residents the opportunity to present arguments on opposing sides of the debate. Michael N. Mattia is chairman of a group formed to urge voters to vote "no" on ballot questions one through five. He represents the "con" side today. City Commissioner Cindy Sanner represents the "pro" side. She has served on the commission a total of nine years but is not seeking re-election.

Tarpon Springs debates referendum questions: Pro
I would like to offer my personal thoughts regarding the referendum items that I have voted to place on the ballot. These items deserve careful consideration by the voters because they will affect the long-range administrative and economic stability of Tarpon Springs. I support a "yes" vote on all of them.
