CRC-LAGRI debate rages on

-A A +A

Dear Editor:
 The county council, having failed to recognize legal precedent and logic, ads and letters are now appearing in the Los Alamos Monitor using mockery and invective to support their ballot proposals.  
 The county council has ruled illegal the LAGRI petitions about capital spending (which were signed by over 2,000 voters) on the grounds that they were logrolling, and subsequently the acting county attorney claimed that logrolling is akin to fraud. (Logrolling is the practice of placing multiple questions addressing separate issues on a ballot.)  Ignoring its own precedent, the county council has now rolled 21 complex issues into four ballots.  Now that’s logrolling!
 The Charter Review Committee, formed by the county council, held some meetings open to the public, and some that were not. Less than a dozen people attended most of the public meetings, but CRC claims to have public input.
 Calling a few CRC meetings “public” does not mean that the CRC knows the views of the public.  That is not logical. In fact, the CRC completely ignored the intent of the LAGRI petitions, signed by thousands of voters, to contain capital spending.  Now, those signatures represented public opinion! If the CRC ballots pass, it will become still harder for voters to petition.
