Move Our Money Local

    2. Petition by

      Eric Coker

      Corvallis, OR

Moving our money to smaller and more local and ethical financial institutions is a means to stimulate and strengthen local economic ties within the community, which will ultimately improve the local economy and foster community cohesion. The City of Corvallis should move their money out of to-big-to-fail Wall Street Banks like Wells Fargo.

      We are less then a week away from our presentation to the City Council telling them to move OUR money out of Wells Fargo. We have good momentum, but your efforts to help us garner more signatures will be invaluable at this moment! Let your friends know that they NEED to sign this petition for the sake of supporting the local economy and wrestling control from the Wall Street Banks. We are the 99% and we will take the power from the 1%!

      We do not want OUR money to support the abusive and unethical practices of Wells Farge or ANY of the mega banks; we want our money to circulate locally - enriching local services and businesses.

      Considering "money talks," I urge the City of Corvallis to allow our money to speak for the people who live and work here. Move our Money! Thank you.

      I live on the country, but work, shop and bank here at OSU Credit Union. Corvallis is a beautiful and progressive community. Please consider moving your banking away from Wells Fargo. the nation's #1 home forclosurer. The "too big to fail banks" rip communities apart for profit. Please don't feed the banks.

      A criminal cabal has used bribery and extortion to legalize usury and fraud. We must withdraw all support from these criminals.
