Who is the Tucson Charter Change Coalition, TC3?

The Tucson Charter Change Coalition, TC3, is a fast growing coalition of community groups and individuals dedicated to improving the City of Tucson’s governance structure. The coalition is committed to an open and inclusive process that will determine and recommend a set of meaningful changes to the Tucson city charter.

What is the Goal of TC3?

The goal of TC3 is to improve the Tucson city charter in ways that will make Tucson government more effective and accountable, positioning the city for prosperity and a high quality of life for all.

What is the process TC3 is using to achieve this goal?

The TC3 will host an educational meeting at the Tucson Convention Center on April 30th. This community-wide meeting will feature nationally recognized experts who will discuss the reasons cities make charter changes and some of the pitfalls to avoid. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the expert panel and express their opinion on a number of proposed changes to the Tucson city charter.

TC3 is holding a series of four meetings with coalition partners, including a meeting April 30 that was open to the public free of charge. Approximately 200 people attended that meeting, which featured two nationally recognized experts discussing the reasons cities make charter changes and some of the pitfalls to avoid. The experts also gave their opinions on the proposed charter changes.

The coalition will meet in May to finalize a set of proposed changes to be submitted to the Tucson mayor and council for consideration.

How will these changes become law?

It will be up to Tucson’s mayor and council to refer these changes to the ballot for a vote of the people in November 2010.
