On CRC, just say no

-A A +A
By Patricia Max

There have been several letters to the editor regarding the four ballot questions designed to amend sections of the Charter that concern Initiative, Referendum, and Recall.  I urge voters to vote No on all four ballot questions for several reasons.
The first is that council is required by law to present only legal questions to the voters.  These four questions are not legal questions because each one was derived from a number of ordinances that were voted on as a group, not individually.  This is in direct violation of the following sections of the Charter:
203.2.1 which describes the introduction of an ordinance, introduced in  writing, and limited to a single subject;
203.2.2 which describes how the notice of the proposed adoption of an ordinance should be published and the contents of the publication;
203.2.3 which states that council may adopt the ordinance with or without amendment or reject it and the process the council must follow if the ordinance is amended; and
203.2.4 which states that unless otherwise provided in this Charter, every adopted ordinance shall become effective thirty (30) days after the publication of the notice of its adoption or at any later date specified in the ordinance.
