North Las Vegas clerk rejects petition to put rent control on ballot

But the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 — which launched the ballot initiative in May to tie year-over-year rent increases to the city’s consumer price index and capping them at 5 percent — contested North Las Vegas City Clerk Jackie Rodgers’ decision to not certify the petition, arguing that the 3,396 signatures it submitted were more than enough.

“We will not be deterred,” wrote union Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge in a news release. “The Culinary Union stands with North Las Vegas residents who have requested an immediate review of the finding of insufficiency and we are confident justice will prevail.”

The union, through its attorneys, is asking the city to reject the clerk’s determination and allow the measure to appear on the November ballot.
