Move To Amend Day Special Council Meeting Announced

In November of 2014, Chagrin  Falls voters passed an ordinance by 66% of the voters designating the third Saturday in March in odd numbered years as “Move to Amend Day.”  The initiative petition placed on the ballot was a response to Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a Supreme Court decision in 2010 that, among other things, deemed spending money as an expression of free speech.

The Ordinance (2105-09) that went into effect as a result of this initiative petition calls for Village Council to hold a public meeting the third Saturday in March in odd-numbered years.  Accordingly, we are announcing a Special Council Meeting for Saturday, March 18 at 9:00 am.

Here is the language from Ordinance 2015-09 about the goal of the meeting: 

WHEREAS, an ordinance was adopted by the electorate on November 4,2014, requiring the Mayor and Village Council to designate one day every two years as “Move to Amend Day” and tosponsor a public hearing to study the impact on the Village of political influence by corporate entities, including unions and Political Action Committees, in connection with the most recent election

 

Here is information from Chagrin Falls resident Becky Thomas, who is associated with the Move to Amend organization:

In a reaction to this threat to our democracy, a national organization called Move to Amend was formed with the intent to amend the Constitution.  In the past few years, Brecksville, Shaker Hts., Mentor, Toledo, Cleveland Heights, Cleveland, Newburgh Heights, Defiance and Dayton have also passed ordinances supporting this constitutional amendment.

The purpose of the public meeting is draw attention to the influence of money in politics.  Citizens will have the opportunity to speak for 5 minutes per person on any topic having to do with the Constitution, money in politics, corporate influence on social/environmental/political policy, the concept of corporate personhood, writing of legislation by corporate lobbyists, state budgets which effect local spending, or any other topic which influences our democratic principles.

Please come and speak.  Your comments will be listened to and posted on the Village website.  We welcome all citizens who want to curtail the influence the wealthy few have on our democracy.
