Well, as the readers of this blog will recall, I asked “Common Sense, Saratoga” a number of questions about this latest version of the proposed city manager charter including who produced it.
In an example of unintended irony, the Common Sense, Saratoga website now has a page on “talking points” for volunteers circulating their petition that includes the following:
Who is sponsoring this petition drive?
- This petition gathering effort is being led by a large group of concerned citizens, which started with members of the 2017 Charter Review Commission. [JK: Emphasis added]
Their first bullet in a list of what motivates them is:
- The lack of checks and balances, transparency [JK:Emphasis added], and accountability in our current government
Can you now identify who wrote the new city manager charter and are leading the petition drive to get it on the ballot??
