Save the Date – Monday, June 21 at 7pm
for an Emergency Public Meeting to discuss a Special Election under the City Charter’s Recall Rules.
Livable Raleigh is going to do what City Council refused to. Hold a PUBLIC meeting. Gather PUBLIC Input. And discuss in PUBLIC the opportunity to hold a timely City Council election using Raleigh’s recall ordinance.
What is the Emergency?
At a recent work session, the Raleigh City Council announced a self-serving and unprecedented power grab to remain in office for an extra year.
With no public engagement and no public vote, Council unilaterally announced delaying elections until November 2022 and eliminating the option for a runoff.
Because of U.S. Census delays, most N.C. municipalities can’t hold valid elections this fall. The solution was to move them to March 2022, when statewide primary elections are on the calendar. However, the City Council asked for a special delay until November 2022.
The entire Wake County Senate delegation opposed Council’s action,
but a special bill has gone to Governor Cooper.
Livable Raleigh is ready to do everything we can to reinstate the voice of Raleigh citizens by holding a special election.
