A Balancing Act

Reasons for Support

Quality, money, and efficiency matter to New Yorkers. Residents are more likely to support consolidation if the quality of their local services improves; if it means their community will become more attractive to business; or if their property taxes are cut. Consolidation is also viewed favorably if the cost of services decreases; if it promotes efficiency; if it reduces duplication of services; or if their community receives grant money.

Please tell me if you think each of the following circumstances would make you more likely to support consolidation of your local government with a neighboring town or city, less likely to support consolidation, or would it not make a difference to your position. (*Question not asked of New York City residents.)
