A local activist is circulating a petition to try to put the New Bedford City Council's 44 percent pay raise question directly before the voters as a ballot question in the November 2013 Election.

The issue of the Council pay raise has been in question for the past could of months. Now, they are asking the citizens to decide.

Is this something that you are in favor of, or against? Now that it's in your hands, is it fair to put voters in that position?
