Looking for alternatives

-A A +A

On April 24, more than 20 ordinances were introduced by council to amend the county charter to toughen existing petitioning requirements, add new requirements such as legal reviews and judicial determinations, as well as numerous other changes.  The ordinances also rewrite charter sections to eliminate ambiguities; however, this means that all of the ordinances need to be squeezed into four ballot questions.  Council will debate these ordinances on Wednesday .
This is a major problem for citizens.
Two years ago, the county council refused to submit certified citizen initiated petitions to voters after asserting, without due process or debate, that they illegally joined multiple issues into a single question. More recently, the county attorney has gone so far as to liken that practice to fraud!
Now the council is seriously considering doing what they condemned others for.
And for what?  There has been no outpouring of support from the public for the proposed changes to the petitioning process.  There has not even been a trickle!  It seems foolish for council to risk its integrity to engage in this act of hypocrisy.
There are alternatives.
