Vote Yes for Coordinated Collection: The DFL exists to consider candidates and issues on the ballot. This referendum is no different than the marriage equality, voter ID, and the school referendums. We are proud to let you know that we also endorsed Vote Yes for Coordinated Collection. We know there is a lot of trash talk out there—but the Supreme Court was pretty clear: the contract stands as is regardless of what happens at the ballot box. Voting No doesn’t stop the current contract or force any negotiations—it only spreads out the cost of residential trash to every property owner in the City—business and residential. We believe that we can Vote Yes for Coordinated Collection and find shared solutions for our City’s challenges together.
