In a letter to STOP, City Clerk Shirley Concolino says nearly 23,000 petitions were signed by registered voters but violate election code.
The clerk says STOP submitted nine different versions of its petition with impermissible wording in each.
Joshua Wood with the pro-arena group "The 4000" says the clerk's decision is not surprising.
"STOP hasn't made the petitions public. They've continued to dodge, weave, duck, dive, do everything to avoid making these petitions public. We had believed for weeks it was because of the number of legal issues with them."-Joshua Wood, The 4000
The city clerk says two other violations by themselves invalidated about 30-percent of the petitions, or enough to keep the measure off of the June ballot.
