Do you agree that the ballot language proposed for two ballot petitions – the CodeNEXT petition and the Austin Efficiency Audit – was misleading to the voters of Austin and if so, will you help clarify to voters what these measures really mean – regardless of how you might vote on them? (Note: This article in the Austin Bullldog is a helpful review. Also note: the Texas Supreme Court ruled on August 27 th , in favor of the city of Austin – see KUT report here.)

The language approved by a majority of the current City Council members for these two measures does appear to be slanted to convey their political leadings on these issues. I am not familiar with the detailed legal aspects of the situation. I believe that ballot propositions brought forth through the citizen petition process should be represented on the ballot with language that expresses the people’s voice.
