The city of Wenatchee has a statute granting its citizens the right of initiative, to make law by petition and a vote of the people. More accurately, we should not call it a right, but a privilege. Rights are inviolable. Privileges can be granted or withdrawn depending on the mood of those in authority. Currently, the mood is not accommodating to those clumsy, inconvenient and expensive citizen efforts to make law on their own. Now, Wenatchee Initiative No. 1 is Initiative Zero. Chelan County Superior Court Judge John Bridges ruled Friday that a local initiative cannot interfere with the authority granted by the Legislature to the City Council, to decide if and how red-light cameras can be used in the city. The initiative filed by Matt Erickson, his We The People Wenatchee and cohorts, is therefore moot even before signatures can be collected and submitted and, perhaps, the proposed law placed before voters.
