The votes are in and the people have spoken. After an incredibly unscientific poll about the biggest issue facing the new Takoma Park City Council, there was a tie.
Tax duplication and development in the Takoma Langley Crossroads were the most important issues. Each answer got 38 percent of the vote.
Crime was the most important issue to 23 percent of poll voters and no one voted for Takoma Junction as the most important issue.
Tax duplication and development in the Takoma Langley Crossroads came up quite a bit in the election debate and were both big campaign issues, even for those not running in Ward 6, where the Crossroads converge.
