I hope that the results of

I hope that the results of this extremely limited "survey" are not going to be us d to make any important decisions for the town. I'm not sure who designed these questions but they are worded in a way that it would be almost impossible to get any new information. We already know that people have been asked for money by panhandlers. I think asking if any interaction with a panhandler was threatening is designed to imply that the answer expected is yes.
And. where are the options to choose town events like The Strolling of the Heifers or the Literary Festival or any of the other events that happen downtown.?
Does anyone know exactly what the actual purpose of this survey is? Because I don't see anything new or substantive coming from it.
