Thanks to all of you who have gotten us nearly 25% of the way to our 1,000 signature goal in just over 12 hours! AMAZING WORK! This is not one of those online petitions that have no bearing in the real world. For everyone that signs, a letter is sent to our district representative and city mayor. We already have the draft legislation, but we need the district representative to sponsor it.
Please, please, please, share this far and wide and help us get as many signatures as possible! We can make this ban happen, but we need to get the word out and need the representative and mayor to know people DO agree with us on the ban! Share this on Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. If we got over 200 signatures in less than 24 hours, imagine how many we can get in the next few days!
Lastly, check out this opinion piece from Philly.com. We were basically belittled for calling for the ban and the author took a strong, albeit misguided, pro-carriage position. Please leave your comments there!
