I did not get enough "valid" signatures for the Bandon Initiative I2014002. I missed it by 44 signatures. There was 268 required and I only had 224 good signatures.
However, that will not deter my goal of getting more choices of candidates on the Bandon ballot. The Committee for More Citizen Representation will refile the same initiative and try again. We may even add another ordinance to lower the number of signatures required to put a measure on the Bandon ballot. It is a difficult task to get 15% of the registered voters in any city due to the expense and the limited places to legally gather signatures......Rob T.
Good Morning Rob,
Attached are the results I received from the County Election Offices regarding Petition I2014002 to amend charter regarding residency requirement of elected officials. The requirement is for 268 valid signatures, which is 15 percent of the registered voters. I have included the County’s Petition Processing Statistics Report that shows the breakdown of accepted/rejected for the signatures collected.
Unfortunately, the ballot measure will not be included on the next ballot as not enough valid signatures (224) were collected to meet the minimum requirement for inclusion on the ballot.
