Activists appeal election board decision
A Republican activist pushing for term limits and a group opposed to a recently passed ambulance fee separately appealed to a Montgomery County court Tuesday to reverse electoral board decisions that would keep their referendums off the November ballot.
Montgomery's Board of Elections recently rejected most of the petition signatures gathered by GOP activist Robin Fickerand the Montgomery County Volunteer Fire-Rescue Association and disqualified their bids to have voters take up the issues of term limits and a new medical transport fee.
"Based on Mr. Ficker's past success in circulating petitions that satisfied the signature requirements of the Election Law, Petitioner is confident that many, if not most, of the signatures rejected as invalid were legitimate signatures of individuals registered to vote in Montgomery County," Ficker's suit says.
