Another step closer…
We met with City Staff to discuss some of the language that is included in the SOAR renewal initiative (including the Voter Participation Area). It was an amicable and constructive meeting.
They had some concerns, as evidenced by everyone who was in attendance. But, they also wanted to work with us. Our attitude going in, was that we welcomed the opportunity to meet with them to ensure that the SOAR measure is not only lawful, but the best that it can be and hopefully preclude a challenge by them.
As a result, we will make a few small changes in specific language, and then, within a few days, formally re-submit the initiative.
Things remain on track, and we are in the process of gearing up for signature gathering training right now.
