Wow Jane, take a deep breath and relax. I wasn't questioning anything or anyone. Just made a simple statement. I am glad we had an election on this matter. What's more, everyone should question anything they please. I just pointed out a simple fact.

Rather than a democracy, I believe ours is a representative form of government.
We elect people to represent our point of view.

It is not a democracy. We have a representative form of government.

According to federal law, QT will be required to remove the tanks.

Well said William.

Everyone isn't happy. Many oppose the QT under any circumstances.

I like the design of the new QT on St Charles Rock Road. The inside is well thought- out with a nice coffee bar. The real monstrosity is the nearly vacant grey barn currently on the northwest corner of Manchester and Big Bend.

Sorry, I simply do not agree with you.

TP: I signed the petition to help bring the QT issue to a vote. But I am for the QT. Please don't assume all 1,144 registered Maplewood voters who signed the petition are against the QT.
Fact is, the people getting signatures even said "signing this petition does not necessarily mean you are opposed to the QuikTrip, it simply means you would like to see a vote of the people".

There is no assumption I know of that we have to have a QT at that corner. But I would prefer a beautiful new facility there as opposed to the current horrible grey elephant with weeds growing everywhere. I think the corner would be much more attractive and safer for the few students (I understand less than 30) that now cross at Big Bend and Manchester.
It also seems that our city government and others have worked hard to resolve most all the previous concerns people have. It appears that the new permanent barrier will be located at the north end of the QT property and will stop all traffic from proceeding north on Martini while allowing southbound traffic to keep moving on down to Manchester.
What's more, Iif QT doesn't move there, I guarantee you McDonald's will be next in line and then many, many other businesses will continue to work on locating at this very valuable (and profitable) piece of real estate.
