2019 CHARTER AMENDMENT ELECTION

 

ELECTION DATE:                          July 9, 2019 

PROPOSED AMENDMENT:

BALLOT TITLE FOR PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO OKLAHOMA CITY CHARTER, ARTICLE IV, SECTION 8

 SHALL ARTICLE IV, SECTION 8, OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF OKLAHOMA CITY BE AMENDED?

GIST OF THE PROPOSITION

Article IV, Section 8, of the Oklahoma City Charter currently provides that “[N]o person holding office or employment under the United States Government or the State of Oklahoma, notaries public excepted, or any other State, or municipality, shall hold any office or regular employment under this City of whatever kind or nature, except that members of a Federal, County or State Advisory Board or Commission may hold office or serve on a City Board or Commission.” The amendment adds the words “laws of the” before the words United States to Section 8, and deletes the words “or employment" and “or regular employment” from Section 8 to permit persons employed under the United States or the State of Oklahoma to become City officers or regular City employees. The amendment also deletes the words “or municipality,” and it deletes the exception language as obsolete since Federal, County or State Advisory Board members are not “officers” as defined by law. Section 8, as amended, would therefore read: “No person holding office under the laws of the United States Government or the State of Oklahoma, or any other State, notaries public excepted, shall hold any office under this City of whatever kind or nature.”

FOR THE CHARTER AMENDMENT YES [   ]

AGAINST THE AMENDMENT NO [   ]
