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!
