“We are confident it will pass on a special election ballot. However, in order to save the city money we will ask that the City Councilors adopt the ordinance. The people have spoken – 27,000 in 20 days.”
No - how about the city council just vote to add this to the next general election. Starting a petition drive late and handing in the petitions at the last moment should not lead to the city council being blackmailed (by cost) into accepting a highly controversial amendment.
Lottery scholarships - how about setting up a payment system ala Oregon, except there would be no need to pay when the recipient works in New Mexico. It really irks me that our students move out of state to find jobs after we pay for their education. I understand that they may have to do this to gain useful employment, but they should pay back the tuition.
Lottery scholarships: there has to be a better way to provide scholarships for what should be lower income students with what should be a better than C+ average than off the backs of low income, poorly-educated New Mexico citizens who really think that they have a chance at winning a lottery. I like shotsie's idea of a requirement that you either find a job in NM or pay part of it back after the state of NM pays for part of your education
