It seems that some signature gathers for I-1240 are making some false claims. Now this may be entirely legal (I'm actually not sure but others are looking into this; I think the burden falls on the voter to read the initiative.)
But I'd like to document them so on the Tuesday and Friday Open Thread, please list if you hear an I-1240 signature gatherer making a false claim.
On Monday, Jun 18th, at about 10 am I was at the Northgate Target where I heard a woman being told that I-1240 was just a "pilot" program for charters. That language is nowhere in the initiative.
And again, I invite you to correct me if I get anything wrong. I did correct one error in my reading; charters can contract out only management (and nearly everything else) to a for-profit. They can contract out only operations to another non-profit (which is what most CMOs - charter management organizations are). They are one of the biggest growing sectors in charters.
