Bedrooms Are For People sues city of Boulder for ballot access
By Katie Langford. Originally published in the Daily Camera on August 3, 2020.
"Organizers with the citizen-led ballot initiative Bedrooms Are For People are suing Boulder for access to the November ballot after city officials gave the campaign incorrect information about filing and signature requirements and City Council members declined to refer the measure to the ballot.
The lawsuit filed in 20th Judicial District Court today by campaign Co-Chairs Chelsea Castellano and Eric Budd asks a judge to compel city officials to certify the campaign’s petition and for City Council members to give it a title and direct it to be placed on the ballot.
The complaint also asks the court to declare the city’s effort to retroactively change deadlines and signature requirements for ballot initiatives invalid."
