Notice of receipt of Ballot Title
NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF BALLOT TITLE
FILED IN THE CITY OF ASHLAND
July 19, 2016
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a ballot title meeting the requirements of section 1(2)(d), Article IV of the Oregon Constitution (one subject) has been filed with the City Recorder.
The ballot title has been prepared by the City Attorney and is as follows:
CAPTION: Support Legislatureís efforts for significant improvement in Oregonís healthcare system.
QUESTION: Shall Ashland voters encourage the 2017 Oregon Legislature to design an improved comprehensive healthcare system for Oregon?
SUMMARY: The Ashland City Council has placed this advisory question on the ballot to determine whether a majority of Ashland voters wish to encourage the 2017 Oregon Legislature to design an improved comprehensive healthcare system for all Oregon residents. This healthcare system would ensure choice of provider; have effective cost controls; provide timely and equitable access; emphasize prevention and be affordable for families, businesses, and society.
The outcome of the election on this advisory question will not be binding; it will, instead, serve to inform Oregon Legislature of the views of a majority of Ashland voters.
ANY ELECTOR DISSATISFIED WITH THE BALLOT TITLE may petition the Circuit Court seeking a different title and stating the reasons the title filed is insufficient, not concise or unfair. Petition must name as respondent the City Attorney and must be filed no later than the 7th day after ballot title is filed with the City Recorder. Deadline is July 29, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. The court shall review the title and measure to be initiated or referred, hear arguments, if any, and certify to the city elections officer a title for the measure which meets the requirements of ORS 250.035.
AN ELECTOR FILING A PETITION shall notify the city elections officer in writing that the petition has been filed. The notice shall be given NO LATER THAN 5 p.m. on the next business day following the day the petition is filed with the Circuit Court. ORS 250.296 '2.
