No on Question 1

Published: 10/22/2021 2:37:58 PM

It appears that the Greenfield City Council is in cahoots with the appointed charter commission. The amount of citizen’s signatures required to put a petition question on the ballot has been the same for years.

Now that this option has actually been used a few times for some very important issues concerning to the people, the council wants to raise the amount of signatures needed to create a referendum. The 13 council members don’t think 325-plus is enough people to question some of their decisions. I disagree. Keep this portion of the town charter the same. Vote No on Question 1.
