Lawsuit filed against City Clerk Marie Wicks

Although being sued discourages many workers, it has made City Clerk Marie Wicks more dedicated. Wicks was sued in August, for presumedly invalidating numerous signatures of a marijuana petition. The petition proposed that adults 21 and older should be allowed to possess one ounce or less of marijuana on private property. While the petition was submitted timely on July 29, there was not enough time to canvass it to validate it by Aug. 12.
