Citizens Initiative Review

The Yes on 4 Campaign recently participated in the first Citizens Initiative Review (CIR) effort in Massachusetts. This is a pilot project that picks one ballot issue and studies it from all angles, with the help of professional moderators, independent experts, and testimony from each side.

We are thrilled that the CIR report to voters, called the “Citizens’ Statement,” reflects our campaign’s main messages in its Key Findings. The panel could have included any or all messaging from our opponents in the Key Findings, but they chose to include none. The campaign thanks all who participated in this well-organized effort, and is pleased that the citizen panelists reflected our primary messages in the Key Findings!
