In a recent letter, John Hopkins suggested that the members of LAGRI distrust the citizens of Los Alamos and are trying to block democratic processes.
In fact, the exact opposite is true.
The CRC recommended and county council approved proposals consisting of 21 ordinances to be condensed into four questions for voters to approve. The reason there were 21 ordinances is because the county charter requires that ordinances be on a single subject. We have all heard repeatedly that it is important for ballot questions to be on a single subject. So why are they being squeezed into just four questions?
LAGRI members believe that voters deserve to vote on the changes encapsulated in the ordinances individually. This is particularly true for the changes that will affect citizens the most, ones that significantly raise the requirements for various petitions. The CRC and county council would seem to believe so as well. They proposed a rule that would REQUIRE that ballot questions to amend the Charter be on a single subject. However, they feel free to disregard it for now.
