Nearly a decade ago I stumbled upon a web site containing one of my first exposures to Initiative and Referendum. The former owner and manager of the site, Don Siebold, lives in Montgomery. The site had basic and in depth information whetting my appetite. Don, because of his health, closed his website and effort.
Don was most generous in sharing his notes with me to keep his fire burning.
Why hasn’t our legislature set Term Limits for themselves? Where is Recall of state-wide elected and appointed public servants? Do we have the best property rights? Citizens will never have these rights unless we ourselves do the work our legislatures choose not to do.
Our team has expanded. Following a very productive four-hour meeting in Birmingham Bob Friedman, Independent Voting board member, and Paul Frankel, state coordinator for Our America Initiative, we have come together to support our common efforts centering about fair ballot access and greater citizen rights. Others who have been generous with their time and advice are Paul Jacob, Jake Witmer, Scott Tillman, and my good friend John Sophocleus.
