I just finished reading Nick Diamantides’s Oct. 19 cover article “Signature drive continues for proposed initiative to require two-thirds vote for taxes.” I am confused. The article leads you to believe all city fees, taxes, assessments, will be subject a two-thirds registered voter’s approval if the “charter change” makes it to the ballot and passes. Does this vote require a two-thirds approval? Ms. Churchill said state law would preclude fee and assessment from this charter change. Who is right? I also understand Ms. Churchill wrote the proposed “city charter” change. Is she a lawyer? What specialty, and is she qualified in state and municipal law?
