Consensus Statement as Prepared by the Local Agenda Committee
If we needed any proof that the present method of amending the City Charter by petition is confusing, we have it in the newspaper stories that followed the League's appearance at City Council on February 6th, One paper has it that the only people who can sign the petition are those who actually voted for mayor in the last election. The other paper says that 10/, of those who voted in the last general election are required. They are both wrong!! The Charter now requires a petition to be signed by "qualified electors equal in number to at least ten per cent of the entire vote cast for mayor in the last preceding mayoralty election". The proposed League amendment would change that to "qualified electors equal in number to ten per cent of the number of registered voters in the last general election". Everybody clear? Let's at least hope all Leaguers are!!
And one more thing. One of the newspaper stories also said that the Citizens' Committee that circulated the Ethics petition did secure the required number of signatures, submitted the petition to the City Council and were turned down, The Committee didn't get enough signatures and the petition effort ended there.
