Why Not Just Take a Poll?

Thu, Dec 17 2009 by Staff

I came across an article in the Nashville Scene earlier today and found it to be an interesting take on the idea and practice of a non-binding referendum.

Roberts, a Nashville attorney and sponsor of an amendment to Nashville’s charter which would simplify and standardize the process whereby citizens can put a measure on the ballot. It’s called Hear the People. Jacob is a veteran of Initiative and Referendum battles across the nation in a decades long career helping citizens require their government to listen to them. They’ll be discussing Roberts’ Hear the People amendment and the election on 1/22.
