Victory

From Petition Creator Melodi Schwartz: In less than 12 hours after posting this petition, Hatteras Island Residents were granted their wish. This proves that if we stand up for what we believe in...WE WILL BE HEARD.

We, the Natives and Locals of Hatteras Island, demand that we be given priority loading rights. We have appointments and other important business that we have to take care of on the mainland. We should not have to sit in lines for up to 9 hours waiting for the Ferry while NON TAX PAYERS load ahead of us. Give us the respect that we deserve. PLEASE. THANK YOU.

      I live in Rodanthe but my address on my license says Nags Head so I hope it works for me because I work up there.

      These residents need to get to and from their homes without interference.
