On Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014, Orange County voters will have the opportunity to strengthen the county charter to guard against out-of-state interests looking to pervert the citizen petition process to advance a political agenda.

Voters will decide TWO issues that will accomplish this goal: 1) Limit the scope of citizen petitions that dictate economic effects on local businesses; 2) Provide citizens with more time to consider the full impact of initiative petitions.

Orange County Now encourages you to SUPPORT BOTH COUNTY CHARTER AMENDMENTS, which will help ensure outside interests do not manipulate the local process to EXPAND the power of the government over our lives, property & private commerce.

The issues as they will appear on the ballot:

COUNTY CHARTER AMENDMENT REGARDING
LIMITING THE POWER TO AMEND THE CHARTER

Shall the Orange County Charter be amended to limit the amendment of the
Charter by initiative, and the enactment, amendment or repeal of ordinances by
initiative, where the initiative concerns the regulation of employer wages,
benefits, or hours of work; or the encumbrance or allocation of tax revenues not
authorized by law or conditioned upon a prospective change in law; and to impose
prohibitions on the Board of County Commissioners?

YES!

COUNTY CHARTER AMENDMENT REGARDING
ELECTIONS ON CITIZEN PETITION INITIATIVES

For the purpose of allowing citizens more time to consider referendum elections
on initiative petitions and to provide certainty regarding petition submittal
requirements, shall the Orange County Charter be amended to require petition
initiatives to have sufficient signatures verified at least 150 days prior to the next
primary, general or special election?

YES!
