Referendum Petition Sprinting to the Finish Line

Published on: December 19, 2014

Signature gathering for our referendum is going extremely well.  Earlier this week, we surpassed 23,000 signatures.  We expect thousands more signatures to be turned in this weekend.  Our goal is 33,000 signatures in order to build in a nice buffer zone for the invalid signatures that will be discounted.

Thus far, our volunteer efforts have yielded nearly twice the percentage of signatures as those of standard petitions.  We’d like to thank our volunteers for their dedication and drive!
