Is the County for or against RIDs?

It is possible that someone in the County may tell you he/she is for or against a particular RID. This should be taken as a personal opinion and not as County policy, for the County must be careful to maintain a neutral position on all RIDs until they are formed. This means that the County cannot properly solicit RIDs, nor can they inhibit their formation.

It is important to understand that the County can be of assistance in circulating the petition, but the mailings and “leg work” involved in formation must be largely done by the petitioners.
