Restore our voting rights!

We the undersigned Brisbane residents who are duly registered voters, request the following actions of our City Council:

  • Hold the November 2017 election for three Brisbane City Council seats as scheduled. This restores the right of Brisbane voters to select who they wish to represent them in 2018.
  • Enact a resolution incorporating one-time elections with either shortened or lengthened terms, to assure municipal elections will take place in even numbered years beginning November 2022, as newly required by California law. The City Attorney provided several scenarios to accomplish this at the January 5, 2017 Council Meeting.
  • Eliminate extensions for Council members currently serving whose terms expire the end of 2017.

Recognizing voting rights as central to a representative democracy, we reserve the right to overturn through the referendum process, any Council ordinance that removes our right to vote in November 2017.
