Major City Issues Should Go to the Voters
Original post made by George on Sep 30, 2007
I am not suggesting that most contentious issues should go to a vote, but there needs to be a mechanism to take the really big ones away from the Council, at least as a final solution. The Council already has the ability to put an issue to the vote, but I would like to see an additional tool, whereby the citizens can take control.
I think we should be able to circulate petitions to put specific issues on the ballot. It should be a high bar, in terms of percentage of qualified voters (but not absurdly high). Maybe this mechanism already exists, and I am not aware of it. Note: I am not talking about recall elections.
