Exciting news, in the inbox:
Dear Fellow Blogger,
Utah Fair Boundaries is making available to the public the opportunity for people to sign our petition electronically, effective immediately. I am asking for your assistance in this endeavor by posting about this event as soon as you are able on your blog.
Petition signers will have the opportunity to read the proposed bill before confirming their signature and have the option to exit out if they do not desire to support our petition.
It is fair to say that this is a watershed moment for our democracy. For the first time ever in our state, regular citizens have the opportunity to voice their opinion anywhere and at anytime, without having to go though the sometimes difficult task of finding a petition. The most rural of locations are now just a click away from the halls of power.
Fair Boundaries already has the support of the citizens. In a recent Dan Jones/KSL poll, 67% support the measure, 18% oppose, and 15% are still undecided with a margin of error of +/- 5%. With the new e-signature campaign, we will be able to reach citizens in small towns just as well as we are able to reach them in big cities. After all, every citizen deserves to have their voice heard.
With your help, Fair Boundaries will reach its goal of gathering 95,000 signatures by April 15th with months to spare. We are hopeful and confidant that we will succeed in bringing democracy back to the people and prove to law makers that the citizens have had enough.
The online petition can be found at http://fairboundaries.utahpetitions.org/, and I invite you to sign as well so that you are familiar with the process.
