Err on the side of democracy

"Here are a couple of words that should keep Boulder city officials up at night: Detrimental reliance.
Detrimental reliance is a legal concept in which a party can be held liable for providing false information a reasonable person might believe to be true if the person bases a decision on that information and the decision leads to an unfavorable outcome.
Which is a long way of saying Boulder city officials have royally screwed up in advising citizens on the requirements for putting initiatives on the November ballot."
