Thus, we are in the final, final stretch of this petition drive for a referendum to claim (reclaim) our City from the greedy investment bankers from New York City, and really from the utterly irresponsible City Council who has forced us into a position of mortgaging our future in this way, rather than addressing head-on our City's budgetary problems.
We hope to have a new petition count by night, but we know WE NEED HELP to finish this drive.
1) Cash. For every $2 donated, we will turn that into a good signature. $5,000 in cash would finish off this drive.
2) Time. We need petition gatherers working hours in good locations. We have the petitions; we have the locations. Each volunteer hour nets between 35 and 50 signatures. It's pretty much a straight-line equation of hours to results. Can we count on you for four hours this week, 100 signatures?
3) Spread the word. Liberty is not free; it comes at the price of eternal vigilance, and this petition to prevent a catastrophic decision from our Council is part of that vigilance. ANY OHIO RESIDENT can circulate a petition. Please spread the word to City residents and Tea Parties throughout the region.
We are not over-stating the need; it is critical and it is urgent. We need several thousand signatures to finish this drive strong.
Please let us know how you can help. Call Tom Brinkman, Jr., 237-4054, to learn how you can help.
