SILENCING OF NYC VOTERS WILL NOT GO UNCHALLENGED
Monday, August 10, NYC CAN began a comprehensive review of the nearly 26,000
signatures invalidated by the
New York City Board of
Elections and City Clerk. With 26,003 signatures
accepted as valid by the City, at least 3,997 additional signatures were
needed to exceed the threshold of 30,000 signatures. 10 days, 50 volunteers
and 1,000 man-hours later, we are thrilled to report we have so far
discovered 6,924 signatures we will argue were wrongly invalidated.
the outcome of the Courtís review of the disputed signatures, lawyers for
NYC CAN and the City will begin arguing the legality of the petitionís
proposed amendment to the City Charter.
Legal proceedings are expected to last through the month of September, by which time a favorable determination from the Court is needed in order for the referendum to be placed on this Novemberís ballot. Over the last 25 years six ballot initiatives have been attempted in New York City. Only one has made it on the ballot: the 1993 initiative to limit New York City elected officials to two terms in office, whose supporters also had to go to court to prove the initiative legal before passage by the voters, and which was nevertheless undone by the City Council last year. We will battle against all odds to see that the initiative to establish a critically needed reinvestigation of 9/11 does not suffer the same fate as past ballot initiatives.
NYC CAN now calls upon its thousands of members and millions aware of the egregious inadequacy of the 9/11 Commission Report to help ensure our fight for a real investigation does not go unnoticed by the larger public. Nearly 80,000 New Yorkers have put pen to paper to call for the right of all New Yorkers to vote an impartial, independent investigation into existence. This momentous step forward in the quest for truth about September 11th will be looked upon with admiration across the globe. Through the ages those who have fought for justice did not win by backing down when their government said no. We will continue this fight and future efforts with the same determination that has gotten us to where we stand today.
