* This Petition for Review is filed to seek review of the D.C. Board of Election and Ethics' ("Board") August 5, 2004, decision In the Matter of Public Hearing on Challenges Field to Initiative Measure No. 68, The Video Lottery Terminal Initiative of 2004, pursuant to D.C. Code § 1-1001.16(o)(1) referencing § 1-1001.08(o)(2), which provides in relevant part that:
This Petition for Review is timely filed within 3 days of the Board's August 5, 2004 oral determination on the validity of the petition for Initiative 68. Presently, however, the Board has not issued its written decision but has indicated, without a specific date, that it will issue a written decision early next week. Therefore, at this time, we are unable to determine if the Board will issue its written decision within the 3 day statutory period allowed to seek review. Thus, we are unable to attach the Board's written decision as required by Form 5 for this Petition for Review. As required under Rule 15(a)(1), we will immediately forward six copies and one original of the Board's written decision to this Honorable Court once it is issued.
CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE
I hereby certify that on this 6th day of August 2004, a true and correct copy of the foregoing Petition for Review was served by hand and first class mail on:
D.C. Against Slots
Ronald L. Drake, Esq.
