The court decision came down this morning and unfortunately it was against us. It was always expected that this issue would not be settled until it was appealed to the Supreme Court.
Here is a statement from the Open Government Committee’s chairman, Paul Johnson…
“While we are pleased that Judge Brain found nearly all of the arguments raised by initiative opponents without merit, we disagree with the ruling that focused on a single and very narrow portion of the initiative—the continuing use of taxpayer dollars to fund the election of political party officers. We expected all along that the ongoing effort by the political bosses and lobbyists to quash this citizen initiative would ultimately find its way to the Arizona Supreme Court. We intend to appeal.”
We will continue to update you as the appeal process proceeds.
Thank you for your support,
