Conjecture, Speculation, Potential for Abuse? Voters will decide.

Time to revisit a “Combination Bond” with a little input from the Town Manager.   Oftentimes people will ask about the debt initiative, specifically, the zeroing in on a “Combination Bond.”  We can explain that.  Before Transparent Payson was formed as a group, a fair amount of research went into an underlying proposal before the […]

Persuasive Arguments for the election Publicity Pamphlet

Sometimes it can be hard to describe. As part of placing the measures on the ballot, we have submitted “Persuasive Arguments” for the “Publicity Pamphlet” that is mailed to voters prior to the election.  The arguments are limited to 300 words.  That provided an opportunity to concisely provide a recap, and why a “Yes” vote […]

Why an initiative instead of a referendum

Recently Transparent Payson was asked “Why an initiative instead of a referendum.” That is both a simple and complex question. Trust us, a “referendum” would be easier to place on the ballot as the Town Code requires 15% of “qualified electors” for a referendum versus 15% of “registered voters” for an initiative. A significant difference. […]
