If elected, Tyler wants to put three measures on the ballot for voter approval next November. They seem directly drawn from the narrative of MacLean's own fall from the good graces of the activists who elected him back in 2002. One of the ballot measures would rein in council member salary raises; MacLean and other council members voted to double their salary to adjust for inflation since the city's incorporation. The two other measures would limit spending and put all major capital improvements to a city-wide vote; in the eyes of his detractors, MacLean has been profligate with city coffers.
How will Tyler's opponents hit back at him? Tyler says he thinks their attack line will be that he doesn't do much besides complain. His response: Yes, he is concerned about the way the city is run--and is happy to discuss the specifics with anyone who wants to.
