Your Opinion: Oppose invasive county zoning

June 18th, 2014 by Hayden Combs, Wardsville in News

Dear Editor:

Proposed zoning for Cole County is a glorified homeowner's association, no more or less. Once again, government is attempting to expand its already invasive hold on people's lives under the aegis of "protecting" your property. In fact, it's just another way to control people and play big brother.

Even worse, the good people of Jefferson City proper are allowed to vote on Aug. 5 in spite of the zoning measure not having an impact on city residents. Talk about stacking the deck.

I would urge every voter to vote no to zoning and strike yet another blow for limited government, free markets, and liberty and freedom.
