"Even though we may not have a duty to take steps, I would hope we have the will."
That's when Brockett and Friend asked for a public hearing.
He agrees with them. "It's worthwhile for us to have a public hearing on these four ballot measures" to have council put them on the ballot.
"Both those paths allow ppl to disagree with the proposition to weigh in and send us emails and so forth."
Friend: That defeats the purpose of health and safety. Ppl will still be collecting signatures.
"I have substantial difficulties with these resolutions on a substantive level."
Carr: It's a legislative act, so you can do whatever you want.
But Young, Yates, Wallach, Weaver say no.
Having council consider these later in the summer "item by item ... is better than nothing"
What's being said here is 5 members do not approve of the different measure ... motion that was made. "There is no endorsement of breaking public health rules."
"Where does this logic stop?" Young asks. If we put them on ballot, then will we be asked just to pass them into law?
EXCEPT IT'S THE YEAR AFTER A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WHICH IS ALWAYS THE LOWEST TURNOUT.
Asks about lowering threshold. For campaigns that have not collected any signatures, I understand waiting. But NEWR has collected over 2,000.
