New city charter initiative filed in Lafayette
Angela Flood, Lafayette citizen and founder of League of Oregon Citizens, has
filed a new city charter initiative.
The ballot title has been published and we are waiting for approval of the
Once the signatures are gathered and confirmed, Lafayette, Oregon residents
will make a decision if they want to continue to allow the corruption to continue,
or they want to hold their local government accountable.
If passed, it is believed this will be the first city charter in the state of Oregon
that has a prosecution clause. This initiative calls out charter violations as a
Class A Misdemeanor.
Citizens here have endured so much injustice, with no authority over the
actions of the council and city administrator. This charter will change that.
Other highlights include letting citizens speak at meetings, removing specific
job descriptions and letting the council fill positions as we may need, and
stopping the endless council seat vacancy allowance.
If you are interested in signing the petition, or volunteering to get signatures,

resident in Lafayette, but you must be a registered voter.
