PROGRAM DETAILS

On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, the League of Women Voters of Richardson sponsored a public program on the proposed amendments to the Richardson City Charter. The program was held in the Richardson Room of the Richardson Civic Center at 7:00 p.m.

 

The moderator for the program was Sandy Greyson, a member of the Dallas City Council and past president of the League of Women Voters of Dallas.

Two panelists discussed several of the proposed amendments:

 

  • Robert Lowry, PhD, Professor in the Political Science Program of the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas; and

     

  • Matthew Wilson, PhD, Associate Professor of Political Science in the Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences at Southern Methodist University.

The panelists gave an overview on home rule charters and on the consequences, if any, of replacing specific requirements or limitations in the current city charter with language such as "to the extent allowed by the Texas Constitution and laws".

 

They then went on to discuss many of the 2- and 3-star ballot propositions (as rated in the League of Women Voters of Richardson VOTERS GUIDE), and followed by answering questions from the audience.
