City residents will have the opportunity to vote on Measure EE (Amendments to the City Charter) on the
November 6 ballot. What does this mean? How will it affect you?
Proponents of the Charter Amendment state that “it will prohibit the use of red-light cameras,” apply “state conflict-of-interest protections” to council members and staff and “make clear and transparent what our council members are being paid.” Opponents state that in 2010 a “blue ribbon commission” reviewed the Charter and “voters approved a comprehensive Update said to bring the Charter into the 21st Century.” Opponents question why “Just two years later” they claim, “without reason or explanation and in an expedited manner the City seeks to update our Charter again.” Link to the arguments: http://www.newportbeachca.gov/index.aspx?page=2160
We will have advocates for and against the measure on hand to make their respective cases. The panelists are Mayor Pro Tem Keith D. Curry and Paul Watkins, Chairman, Citizens Charter Update Committee (for “Yes” on EE) and Ron Hendrickson, Architect and 40-year Newport Beach Resident and Jim Mosher, Community Activist (for “No” on EE.)
This promises to be a very interesting and informative forum. Questions and answers will follow the presentation.
