Saratoga Citizen: "The numbers speak for themselves"

Saratoga Citizen organizer Pat Kane dropped in today to give me a heads up on his upcoming comments to the City Council (check Tuesday's edition), and show me a breakdown of the 2,014 residents who have signed the group's petition to put a charter change referendum on November's ballot.

Saratoga Citizen Stats

The *'d numbers show signatures they could not match up to the county voter database on a second pass, mostly due to illegible handwriting, Kane said.

"The numbers speak for themselves," Kane said, noting that he would like to collaborate with the council, but that no one has returned his phone calls.

See you at the council meeting, it should be another good one.

Do these statistics change your position on the charter change proposal?

Getting support from people in a democracy to put something up for a vote should be pretty easy, so those numbers don't impress me. I still don't see how this can not cost the city extra money...
