Petition Signatures Verified

Early unconfirmed reports suggest King County Signature verification of petition validated 105 signatures out of 152 on the petition. Over 30% of signatures were invalid or not reviewed. Only 98 signatures are needed to advance to the ballot. It appears that the petition only has seven extra signatures to advance. Other legal experts have weighed in suggesting petition may be “invalid” as there is not an effective date listed on petition and some laws have changed since June 9th.

Here is a link to King County Petitions showing Clyde Hill’s petition:

The next questions: Is the petition valid without an effective date? Will Council Members vote Tuesday June 28th at 6pm to “fast-track” Resolution #678? For such a monumental change after 69 years, City Council should afford voters the time to be educated on such a change. Why the rush? Let the Democratic process play out for the November 2023 ballot.
