At the August meeting (Monday, August 24), a motion was made and carried by the members of Tempe Republican Women to oppose the Charter Amendment that would allow for the creation of a publicly (i.e. taxpayer) financed election system in Tempe.
The clean elections measure was explained to the members by Political Education Chairman Darryl Jacobson-Barnes. The resolution is currently scheduled to be on the March 16 primary election ballot. To voice your opposition, email the city council and the mayor or leave them a message at 480.350.8110.
