Liz Maland, City Clerk
City of San Diego
202 C Street
San Diego, CA 92101-4806
Dear Ms. Maland:
Please accept this letter as a formal request to challenge the determination of the Registrar of Voters regarding the sufficiency of signatures submitted under the Competition & Transparency in City Contracting Initiative.
This ballot initiative was filed because the labor unions and city leaders have not respected the votes cast by the vast majority of San Diegans in 2006 under Proposition C on Managed Competition.
Every San Diegan who signed this petition desires to reform their city government – and every signature should therefore be counted. As such, we hereby request that the process for determining the sufficiency of the petition provide for an immediate a full
count of every signature submitted.
This request is pursuant to process your office advised it would use when we originally filed the petition on December 22, 2010. It is also consistent with the process explicitly outlined in your letter to our campaign dated June 28, 2010 – and consistent to the
process you outlined in the letter dated June 14, 2010 accepting the petition as filed.
Consistent with the cost estimate your office has provided to our campaign for the full count verification method, and pursuant to your request, a certified check in the amount of $151,693.24 will be provided to your office by the deadline Friday, July 2, 2010.
Please contact me with any questions you may have.
City Councilmember – Initiative Proponent
