Letter: Iowa City vote yes for Measure C

With all of the hubbub surrounding federal elections, government can feel far from something we as individuals can control or even access.

This doesn’t have to be the case. Our government was created for the people and by the people and it is our right to have a government that allows our voices to be heard.

Passing Measure C is one way to achieve that. Measure C seeks to reduce the number of signatures a petition needs to get either a referendum (change to existing law, issue or decision) or initiative (introduction of new law, issue or decision) in front of city council for consideration and possibly put on the ballot. The more choices, decisions and issues we can consider in partnership with city council, the more the people’s voice can be heard and the community as a whole gets to make decisions for itself.

Please vote yes on Measure C in this election.
