Trillhaase: Referendum Not Recall

Sixty days after this dreadful legislative session ends, round up at least 47,432 signatures from registered voters - or 6 percent of the electorate - and demand a referendum on Luna's legislation. That would provide what Luna denied you -empowerment. A chance to be heard. It would be only the fifth time that the voters could repudiate or sustain the actions of their Legislature - the others being sales taxes (1936 and 1966), right to work (1986) and term limits (2002). This would become the defining issue of the 2012 state election. The GOP legislative majority and its agenda would be on trial. Majority vote wins/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Does it make more sense to seek a referendum on Tom Luna's education "reforms" or to try to recall him?
