Who in their right mind, outside of the public servants with lucrative vehicular use bonuses, would vote yes ?
However, the Democrats do need the police vote to maintain an electoral edge.

It depends on which company the Government Employees are taking the cars from....I think the Gazette needs to rephrase the question...They are not company cars. They are "taxpayer funded vehicles".Paid by the Taxpayers, Gassed up by The Taxpayers, Maintained by The Taxpayers, Insured by the Taxpayers. If the question was phrased as "Should GE Employees be able to take company cars home?" that would make sense. That would make it a "Company Car".
