Referendum Petition (PDX 2) Qualifies for Ballot (11/08/12)

On Wednesday, November 7th, 2012, the signature verification process was completed by the Multnomah County Elections Office and the Secretary of State’s Elections Division for the referendum petition PDX 2. The referendum seeks to refer ordinance No. 185612 which authorizes and directs the Portland Water Bureau to fluoridate the City ofPortland’s public drinking water supply. Chief Petitioners are Kim Kaminski, Frances Quaempts-Miller, and Malgosia Cegielski.

 

Statistical sampling shows the petition contained 33,015 valid City of Portland registered voter signatures, qualifying it for the ballot on the intended election date of May 20, 2014.  According to Portland City Code, the required number of signatures for a referendum to qualify for the May 2014 Primary Election ballot is 19,858.  Portland City Code specifies that a referendum measure should be placed on the ballot at the next biennial primary or general election unless Council finds that public interest in a prompt resolution of the question outweighs the costs associated with a special election. The referendum petition will be certified by the City Auditor’s Office for Council action today, Nov. 8th, 2012.
