THIS IS A LEGAL PETITION and is the ONLY petition circulating in Ramsey County on the stadium funding issue. We cannot "sign" your name because you send us an e-mail.
A legal petition cannot be circulated by e-mail or on the internet. Those are surveys and polls, and carry no legal teeth.
Only registered voters living in Ramsey County can sign the petition, and have to do so in person. A voter can sign only for him/herself, no one else. All signatures have to be witnessed by the person who is collecting the signatures. The petition will be filed with Ramsey County and has to meet all legal requirements.
Ramsey County citizens are petitioning to put a question on the ballot for the Nov. 6, 2012 general election.
The petition language is as follows:
RAMSEY COUNTY CHARTER AMENDMENT PETITION
RESTRICTION ON USE OF TAXES, BONDING AND OTHER RESOURCES FOR PROFESSIONAL SPORTS
We, the undersigned registered voters in Ramsey County, hereby petition the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners for the purpose of amending the Ramsey County Charter, as follows:
Sec.9.06 Restriction on Use of Taxes, Bonding and Other Resources
Ramsey County shall be prohibited from using tax revenues, bonding authority, or any other county resources to finance a sports facility to be used by a professional team, or to subsidize the operations of a professional sports team, unless approved by over 50% of those voting on the question in a general election.
