More about logrolling

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Monitor reports that the “search for county attorney commences.” The candidate must, according to the first item on their list of qualifications, provide advice and counsel on topics that include development and interpretation of county ordinances and policies.
 In the county council meeting of Feb. 28, county attorney Brian James likened logrolling to fraud and said that his office would never recommend putting a logrolling ballot proposal before the voters, and this was so reported in the Los Alamos Monitor.
The logrolling issue has been around since former County Attorney Mary McInerney introduced it in connection with the LAGRI petitions. But those concerned have not bothered to define logrolling, except the Los Alamos Monitor, which reports that it is the practice of joining multiple issues into a single ballot proposition. This is an oversimplification. Furthermore, it has not been proven that there are multiple issues; that has often been repeated, but that does not make it proof.
Logrolling is trading or combining votes for gain. Actually there are many definitions, but those that concern the law all include the concept of gain for those involved. From Harvard Law it is, The act of trading across issues in a negotiation.
