Anti-LRT activists in Clackamas County seek Milwaukie MAX referendum
The Oregonian‘s Molly Harbarger reports that a group of activists in Clackamas County, opposed to the Milwaukie MAX project, is seeking to place a referendum on the ballot to prevent the county from contributing any money to “finance, design, construct or operate” the project. The petition, approved by the Board of Commissioners, will be reviewed by the county district attorney within five days, and if it passes legal muster, petitioners will then be able to start collecting signatures. Nearly 10,000 signatures is needed to put the matter on the ballot.
