Brecksville residents haven’t heard the last about Issue 25, the “money is not speech” issue on Tuesday's ballot.
The issue narrowly passed in the Nov. 6 election with about 52 percent of the vote, according to the unofficial numbers from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.
Part of the issue was to establish a “Democracy Day,” a meeting held in the February after a federal election to discuss the impact of political contributions on the city.
But the details of how this day will work are still up in the air. Rose Petsche, one of the residents behind Issue 25, said she hopes the city will allow the members of the group to help make the day a success. She wants to find a way to incorporate high school students and encourage the community to participate.
Steve Sweetnich, a resident who had reservations about the overall issue and campaigned against it, said he’s concerned about the lack of set rules for the meeting. He thinks the lack of definition could lead to problems.
Mayor Jerry N. Hruby couldn’t be reached as of publication.
