SPCU gets cordial reception in Burnside


Burnside —

Following Friday’s meeting with SPCU, Jones still maintained both those views and remained undecided on whether or not to fully support a unified government paradigm.
“I don’t know,” Jones told the Commonwealth Journal on Friday “I’m leaning in any direction at all. I’m open-minded. There’s so much about it, I don’t even know what I don’t know.”
That said, if Burnside is to participate, its representation remains key for Jones.
“It’s depending on how they set (the commission) up,” he said. “Do they set it up with one member per thousand population, or do they set it up one member per town, and one vote carries the same weight? Otherwise Pulaski County will have a bunch of votes, Somerset will have a bunch of votes, and for Science Hill, Ferguson Burnside, it won’t matter what we vote. Right now, we can run our own little town the way we want to.”
