Save Asbury's Waterfront Update! 2,500 signatures! updates about council mtg + donations
Nov 6, 2018 —
Good morning, we are almost to 2,500 signatures on our petition - great work! We were featured on WABC-7 Eyewitness News last night!
The Asbury City Council meeting is this Thursday 11/8 6:00 PM. iStar will present its boardwalk construction plans to the Council during the Workshop Session, public are welcome. After the workshop session is finished, the Regular Session will begin with public comments (3 min each) at 7:00 PM.
SAW Volunteer Meghan Carroll has established the official Save Asbury's Waterfront fundraiser page! If you are inclined to financially support this cause, money raised here will fund legal expenses and other directly-related expenses such as printing.
I have an important item to share about donations you might have made when you signed this petition.
It was brought to my attention that some petition signers donated money when they signed this petition. When I set up the petition, I did NOT set it up with a fundraiser. If you have donated money via the change.org petition, your money went to change.org. Change.org is a non-profit organization and it relies on donations to keep its site running. The site has a disclaimer explaining this, but I did not find it to be clear. (Also, I have no way to know who donated money or how much.)
When I contacted them about this, Change.org stated, "we never intend to take money from users without their consent or under fully understanding of what they're doing." If donating to change.org is not what you intended to do, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address that you signed the petition with, and explain that to them and they will review your case. I am really sorry for any confusion this caused, and if you need my help, please contact me directly.
Thank you very much, Kathleen Mumma on behalf of Save Asbury's Waterfront
