DC Boycott of all Things Utah

This petition had 25 supporters

Utah Congressperson Jason Chaffetz, elected by Utahans to represent Utah, has decided to insert himself into matters concerning a locality 1850 miles away from his legislative district. We, the actual residents of Washington, DC, did not elect this man to have any input whatsoever on our city and its local laws; we do not want his opinions or political maneuvering violating our will as expressed through our duly elected City Council; we are tax-paying citizens represented by our own elected (albeit voteless) Congressperson and neither need nor want Mr. Chaffetz's meddling in our local affairs. Washington, D.C.'s Death with Dignity Act has the overwhelming support of the local community, and we demand Mr. Chaffetz retract his legislation to overturn this law. 

We ask the DC City Council and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser to initiate symbolic legislation requesting DC citizens to boycott "All Things Utah". Such a boycott would include goods and services from Utah-based companies such as, Scullcandy, Altra Footwear,, Flying J and Pilot gas stations, Fusion-io, FranklinCovey, and Mrs. Fields Foods. Furthermore, the legislation should also suggest a "travel ban" to Utah on behalf of lawful DC residents whose right to local governance is threatened by Mr. Chaffetz's unelected, thus uninvited, interference in our local affairs.
