The following is a statement from the Coalition for Arlington Good Government on the filing of “change of government” referendum petitions.
The Coalition for Arlington Good Government (CAGG), a broad-based community coalition, is committed to its mission of educating voters about the damaging effects of the change of government referendum petition that could be placed on the Nov. 2, 2010 ballot.
The next step in the process is for the Registrar to determine if the required number of valid signatures was submitted. CAGG has confidence in the Registrar’s ability to complete this step in a thorough, accurate manner.
If the proposed referendum gets on the ballot, CAGG remains committed to ongoing voter education efforts. CAGG looks forward to continuing a community dialogue about how to promote good government in Arlington.
A bad, bad idea…definitely should be defeated if it makes the ballot.
