Sign the Petition – Leg 1
The Sign the Petition Tour completed its first leg, visiting six counties in Region V (Blaine, Gooding, Jerome, Twin Falls, Lincoln, & Camas). Chief Petitioner John Belville met with volunteers at four of six locations and along with them collected 215 signatures.
We also collected signatures already gathered by the amazing activists in Region V. While they’re all deserving of praise, we’re taking this moment to recognize Tracie C., our Lieutenant for Blaine County.
Tracie, all by herself, has collected over 700 signatures since August. She has posted five individual weeks with over 100 signatures gathered.
WE ARE CURRENTLY IN POSSESSION OF JUST OVER 11,000 NOTARIZED SIGNATURES STATEWIDE.
You may have heard other numbers bandied about, like 20,000 or 25,000. That represents the petitions we have out currently being worked on, but not yet notarized and turned in. As a wise man once said, “don’t count your chickens before they hatch.” Petitions still in your hands are still eggs, not chickens.
So, if you have notarized signatures, we need to collect them. You can get them to your County Lieutenant or Regional Captain to forward to HQ. You can mail them yourself to HQ (1223 S Lizaso Ave, Boise, ID 83709). Or you can meet us on the Sign the Petition Tour (www.IdahoCann.co) and hand them over like Tracie and the other volunteers did.
This weekend, we’re in Mountain Home, Rupert, Burley (Friday), American Falls, Pocatello, Soda Springs (Saturday), Paris, Preston, and Malad City (Sunday).
