The mystery surrounding the unknown person or group behind phone polls opposing the Taxpayer Protection Committee’s initiative continues. Through late Monday afternoon, Prescott City Clerk Elizabeth Burke said she hadn’t received any paperwork from a committee to formally oppose the initiative. “No one has filed anything with me, so it’s kind of the same place it was before,” she said. The initiative, which is on the Nov. 1 ballot, would require that large city projects totaling $40 million or more must go to a vote of the people.
